Liberated Piecing + a nice Fabric Sale

Guess what?  I was planning to share a quilt I made for Angled class with you this week.  It features lots of Botanics by Carolyn Friedlander.  And it just so happens that those very fabrics (and everything else from Robert Kaufman) are on sale at Fat Quarter Shop through Sunday.  Serendipity!

But first, the quilt...

Floating Wedge quilt

For the first week of Angled class we worked with equilateral triangles.  I designed the block that forms this quilt to be born of leftover triangles.  It was our first go at liberated piecing, or piecing without templates or precise shaping goals.  This kind of work happens best when you are relaxed and a bit carefree, with an attitude of discovery.  Don't you love how little irregularities add character to the work?

I started this quilt fresh on the heals of the release of Botanics, an awesome collection by Carolyn Friedlander.  In particular I was (and still am) smitten by the metallic foliage or perennial print, which I used for the background of these blocks.

The floating wedges are made from random stash fabrics with playful, boyish personalities.  If I was having a boy, I'd probably have to keep this one....  But since I'm not, I've just listed it in my shop.  Crossing fingers it finds a good home soon!

In case you need some great texture prints from Botanics or some Kona Cotton or any other goodies from the Robert Kaufman fabric house, ALL Robert Kaufman fabrics are 20% off now through Sunday, September 28th at Fat Quarter Shop. 

And did you know that they recently updated their shipping policies to be super friendly to out of country shoppers?  For example, orders under $20 are just $7 to Canada and $12 anywhere else.  See Shipping for more details.

Enjoy!
