Tribal quilt is coming along nicely!! I told you when I joined the Happy Quilt-a-long with Melissa not too long ago, and more recently showed you I was making progress (earlier progress here).
Want to see the top pieces all laid out together? I know I was excited to!
These prints look amazing with this design! It's got so much movement and balance to it. It's crazy and wild, but still within some bounds.
The latest step had us create the sashing or corner pieces. I went a little rogue and decided to use two sashing colors (khaki and chocolate brown) to help offset or soften the diamonds in the center of the quilt.
This is the sashing in progress. The remaining charms had to be laid on triangles, pinned and marked. Then, the two lines were sewn.
After sewing, I cut between the lines very carefully (and mostly straight) which created the corner pieces as well as a bonus HST (half square triangle)!!!
Here is another look at the stack of bonus HST's piling up! I'm excited to put my thinking cap on and come up with the perfect use for these little bonus pieces. I have an idea that I am hoping to give a try this week!
So, there you have it! I am making great progress.
I have begun to assemble the top and my brain is already off thinking about what the back should look like, if I should add any borders to the front, and how I should quilt this one.
Oh... and yes, I have the binding picked out as well. Can't wait to show you more!!
I can already imagine this design in a different color scheme and in a bigger size. You may be seeing round two with this pattern in the near future.
