I just finished the first column pair using all 16 triangles (twice):
I will end up with an almost square quilt top – 48 wide x ~ 52 long. I can’t add more elements to lengthen each column because I’ve run out of some of the fabrics. So this is it. I could change the width/length ratio by assembling just 7 columns instead of 8; that’s a possibility – and then add a dark 3 1/2″ border to extend the size. I’ll make that decision after I have the 128 triangles sewn together.
I’m more pleased than I thought I would be – the Escher illusion works better than I expected it to, given I wasn’t completely lucky with my fabric colour placement – but the interwoven branching columns stand out clearly.
So, just carry on.
Oh! Now I know how hard you work.
That’s awesome. I’ve been wanting to try an Escher. Your tutorial has given me more courage to lean into to. I’m also more fond of the large print Kaffe’s. So I think I’ll use Batiks instead. Thanks also for including your mistake and how you uncovered and corrected it. I appreciated that the most. Well done 👏
Batiks will work nicely, too. Just be sure you have definite lights, mediums, and darks otherwise the colour flow may not be obvious.
Wow you really are a Master of Quilting…. and the marvelous quandaries of problem solving!
Thanks. It’s the problem solving that drives me. Love when I can work out an idea.
Can’t wait to see more. It’s wonderful.
