Ready to sandwich a new stencil quilt
My next stencil quilt will have a pink, orange and gold applique. The patchwork is triangle-ish, and the stencil will be big.
It was another cut, sew, recut and repeat process, with the final two cuts in 4 inch strips and points aligned. It lends a hint of order to the chaos. The strips of solid orange and pink will not be visible in the finished quilt. (Well, maybe the tiniest corner... we'll see.)
And here's the background for the stencil: the red bricks I posted the other day. Seeing the two pieces together you may have noted that I'm not going for subtlety here.
I'm going to try something different this time. For the other three I completed the reverse applique of the stencil before sandwiching the quilt. This time I'm going to do the quilting and applique at the same time, then cut out the background pieces around the stencil. I'll let you know how it goes.
I love the energy of the shattered triangles and the richness of the reds. I may have to come back and make each pattern into its own quilt after I'm done cutting this one up!
