A few weeks ago I took an online class on angles from Rachel Hauser at Stitched in Color. I’ve taken other classes on angles, and have some experience sewing them, but I haven’t been able to get out to any classes lately. I love going to class, but since I don’t have that option right now, I thought I’d give this a try. I enjoyed the class. I am also enjoying the patterns that come with it. Right now I’m working on her Indian Blanket Quilt. I’ve been working on it on and off for a few weeks now and finding it to be great practice sewing triangles, but also great practice with colors. There are a lot of rows and each row has its own fabric.
I have four rows to add, if I stop at the end of the patterns. I was thinking about possibly adding a few rows and using it as an everyday quilt for my daughter’s bed. I think it would go nicely in their bedroom. So we’ll see how much extra work is involved. Here is the last
of the complex rows, pieced.
And here are a few ideas I have for the other rows that I haven’t started to cut or piece.
I started this quilt as an exercise, but have found that it is really growing on me. I have enjoyed taking my time and piecing it over several weeks. But I am looking forward to completing it soon.
