Distracted!

I got distracted from my triangles by other triangles! I came across some of my hand dyed fabrics and decided to use my equilateral die set to cut them up. These will finish at 5 inches on a side.
My purple is not very purple and my orange is not very orange. If they were, this would make a nice color wheel. I really like these dies. They have tiny notches on two sides making it easy to get them lined up. This doesn’t happen very often:
 So I had to take a picture of that intersection! These “blocks” remind me of beach balls. Time to play a bit on the design wall.

I tried going with a random lay out of the triangles on the sides, but it didn’t work for me. Since the hexagons were in color order, the triangles wanted to be also.

Better.
  Then I added some  background.

The strips above are not yet sewn together. This will be another baby quilt. I am really looking forward to playing with the quilting on this. The colors remind me of cotton candy, not my go to palette, but it’s kind of cute.

    I love how you rotated the “balls” and every other one mirror images the next one. And look at those POINTS!! Holy Moley!!

    I sure love your hand dyes. very smooth subtle changes in the fabric. I’m not sure if this makes sense but alot of hand dyes have globs of color in the piece.
