27 Apr Free pattern expiring…
In an effort to keep the blog a little fresh, I am removing my Triangle Maze free pattern download on May 10, 2011. Over 200 people have downloaded the patterns since I made it available early last year. If you have always meant to download it and haven’t done it yet, time is running out.
The three quilts I made from this pattern include Confetti Maze, Blueberry Lime Fizz and Choppy Seas. I think Confetti Maze is my favorite but, of course, I like the others too 🙂
This pattern really shows how fabric choices make such a change in a quilt. In Choppy Seas (bottom), I used medium blues for all the background fabrics and dark blue and white for the triangles. You can see that the triangles stand out the most and the medium blues kind of fade into the background. In Blueberry Lime Fizz (center), I used four fabrics. The dark blue and white for the triangle strips are nearly the same as in Choppy Seas, but the lime green background strips really stand out and make an interesting secondary pattern of “L” shapes. The periwinkle blue fabric stays in the background visually. In Confetti Maze (top), I used white for the background and half of the triangles, putting the emphasis on the bright triangles.
