Big triangles, little triangles

Hello everyone, this is Lynley from Canberra, Australia. I love the idea of this get together! All my favourite things in one spot - solid colours, liberated quilting and a bit of show and tell! I'm going to use #107 the pinwheel crib quilt for my inspiration - I like the concept of big triangles, and little triangles. Big and little - sounds like my preferred (low) level of design complexity.

I'm not sure if I'll feather the pinwheel blades though, I might use the little triangles around the whole pinwheel, or even around the setting squares. No need to worry yet, I'll just make a bucket of those tiny little triangles and see where they want to be.

No thoughts on colours yet either - but I've bought the fabric already! Here it is ready to go ... how's this for a blank slate?

I am waiting for a nice warm day to dye- so much nicer to let it dry outdoors and not worry about using the dryer!

No problems finding a good dry day in Canberra at the moment!! But it does make it easier, doesn't it, if there's sunshine - and generally more pleasant.

Its never going to be a nice dry day again in Maryland.....its supposed to snow yet again. At least I have time between shoveling sessions to do some quilting.
