I'm really struggling with how to quilt my "triangles on parade" quilt. I've got some ideas that I want to bounce off of you but before I go into that I wanted to share yet another use I've come up with for Glad Press'n Seal. I've used it before to mark a quilt and sew right through it. This time I'm using it to audition some quilting options. I printed out a black and white rendering of my quilt and taped it to a cookie sheet. I then laid a piece of Press'n Seal over it. Now I can draw on it using a fine tip permanent marker to play around with how I might quilt it. (Yes, I admit it, I'm smiling ear-to-ear at my own cleverness).
Before I added the white sashing, my intention was to straight line quilt along the triangles, highlighting the triangle pattern. I'm not sure if I still want to do that now. Will that still look okay with the white, especially if I go with my original thread choice of a light celery green? I'd essentially be quilting triangles onto the white. Might be interesting and I could fill in some of them to make them pop. I don't know.
Of course, half way through making the lines in the drawing above, I realized that I made my white sashing double what it should be. Each of the triangle sections (2 rows of triangles) are 12 inches high and the white sashing is 6 inches high. In the drawing I made them both 12 inches. Oops. It still gives me an idea of how it will look.
My other thought would be to quilt curves on the triangles. I like that it would give some softer lines to all the angles of the triangles but then I really don't know what to do in the 6 inch sections of white.
If I go with this option, I would use the celery green in the triangle sections and probably white in the white sections. What do you think? Any brilliant ideas or suggestions?
