Hello, fellow quilters. Thought I would pop in to show you another brown quilt top that I had completed in the early spring. As I mentioned in this post, I had a lot of browns in my stash for making quilt tops for our Prayer Quilt Ministry. On this top, I used a fair amount of browns while throwing in some orange along the way – a perfect quilt for fall.
If you look at the square that is down four and over three, you will see what I intended to be the center of my top. The plan was to have a center diamond [outlined in tan] with the outer squares creating a larger diamond based on inspiration from Amanda over at 3and3quarters. Clearly that didn’t happen! Instead I have a bunch of small mountain peaks.
I’m not sure if you can tell what I’m talking about because my photo is not very good at all. The lighting was bad and I have a lot to learn about photography and editing. Just look at how the tan points emanate from the bottom to form peaks.
I’m not sure what happened but I like it. Sure, its not what I intended but the missteps I took made it unique. I’ve not seen a pattern like this before. That’s something I really love about quilting – and half square triangles in particular – you never know what new pattern might evolve. It was a happy accident that didn’t turn out so bad in the end.
Have you made any happy quilting mistakes?
