I’m not too worried about technological singularity being an issue in the future – it’s already in existence for me! This week’s isosceles triangle quilt pattern continues to give me fits!
Last week, I had planned on using a pattern that was based on an isosceles triangle but couldn’t figure out how to make EQ7 dance to my tune. This week I did figure things out but have been stumped by the export image. Normally it works beautifully, but this time there is a missing triangle! I’ve started from scratch, put other colors in… all to no avail. So just put your thumb over the missing triangle and keep reading!
The original pattern features fabric by Malka Dubrawsky. Have you seen her fabric before? It’s very taste specific, so I’m not sure if the original pattern and fabric would speak to a lot of people.
As always, changing the fabric a little makes a big difference in the quilt. In addition to the original placement, I also mocked up a random placement as well as one based on hexagons.
My favorite option is the random placement. I reused the same Art Gallery Fabric from last week – Joyful Fusion. I do love the pinks, blues, and greens together.
But back to Malka Dubrawsky, my favorite product of hers is a book called “Color Your Cloth: A Quilter’s Guide to Dyeing and Patterning Fabric”. I haven’t had a chance to read through the entire book, but I plan on trying out a couple of projects over the summer (using the kids as “assistants”) to see how that works. I have a bunch of RIT dyes and really look forward to experimenting to see how it all works. RIT dyes are not as fancy as some dying products but you also don’t need to worry about respiration and mixing, so there are some compensating factors.
Enjoy the pattern!
