Not so recent project...

With all the fun I've been having behind the scenes at 52Quilters things have been pretty quiet here in my little corner of the world wide weberverse. Well I say quiet, but I have been making behind the scenes and working on a few new projects, including a plan to spruce things up around here.

For now, I'm catching up with a share of a make I finished earlier this year. A gift for a mother and father-to-be which I had a really fun time making. After drowning myself in pinterest inspiration for bold geometric patterns, I decided to play more with stripes than shape and developed this off-centre broken stripe pattern, and created some foundation pieced templates for myself so I could keep things as precise as possible.

From there I played a bit with colour and rotation to create the quilt below.  On the back, I played with light and dark blues and carried the broken stripe motif but cut out the random angles.

I'm really happy with the pattern, and am thinking of developing it into a free resource or tutorial, once I get my new and improved site up and running! Obviously, I'm a bit behind in my to-do list - I actually finished this project in MARCH - hence the title of this post.
