I am so lucky! My friend who has an online fabric store and does pop-up vending, needs some samples to help fill out her booth. This quilt is one of those samples.
The line of fabric is 'Modern Retro' by Makower (see them here https://www.mystache.ca/collections/moder-retro-by-makower-uk). The pattern is a free download from the Andover site: https://www.andoverfabrics.com/Quilts/Tiger%20Plant.pdf
Here is the image from the pattern, I liked the stark lines of the shapes, and lots of wide open spaces.
With the quilting, I tried to emphasize the diagonals running across the quilt. And I even drew out an entire quilting plan before the quilt went on the frame!
There is a digital designed in the grey of the half rectangles, repeated in a smaller size in the flying geese. Echoed with a free motion variation surrounding the crosses.
In the top right half rectangle triangle block, the diagonals stretched across the grey, so I swapped the digital design into the print instead.
The flying geese have a smaller repeat of the digital design.
In a couple of the areas for the digital design, there was a bit of the diagonal design that went through where the digital design was destined, so I got to play with cropping out that part of the design. Lots of learning on this quilt :)
The learnings included not rushing through directions. Those half rectangle triangle (HRT) blocks? They are not half square triangles (HST). There is a quick method to make HST's where you draw a diagonal line across the back, and sew 1/4" on each side of that line, slice on the diagonal and you have two nice HST's. This does not work with HRT. Because they are not squares, they are rectangles. Did I mention that these blocks are not squares? Of course I blasted through the directions and tried to make that HRT the method you use when making HST. Does not work. Because they are rectangles, not squares.
The directions were correct, I just didn't follow them closely enough. Sheesh.
I did have a lot of fun with the quilting on this, including some matchstick quilting in the diagonals to create more triangles.
Here is the digital design - one of Judi Madsen's Feather Curl.
The back is a fun Robert Kaufman's Rhoda Ruth grey print.
