Angular Blooms & Greenery—Designed as a community service quilt to raffle for a charitable cause. Given the parameters of using angles other than 90° and the color palette of a spring garden, Blooming Edge sprouted.
Now you can make this nationally-displayed unique pattern yourself! Completely based on diagonal rows of 60° triangles, this twin-bed-sized quilt definitely makes the most of the angles—from blooms to leaves to grassy foreground. Then by adding a low-contrast fabric for one diagonal and rows of stripes for the other, it becomes a show-stopper with great movement.
These blooms grow in front of a white background, but it would be just as striking with a darker background and light stripes. Try a new colorway, and see how your garden grows.
Using a combination of sewing methods —f rom foundation paper pieceing to a bit of easy improv—you’ll find just enough of each to keep your interest. The
step-by-step construction of the 1/2" stripes makes accuracy very doable!
Have fun with this geometric design!
