I finished this quilt in April, but I’m just getting around to looking at the photos I took just after it was bound and washed.
Can you tell it was a windy spring around here?
The inspiration for the pattern came from Barbara Brackman’s Encyclopedia of Pieced Quilt Patterns. The four large blocks in the center are #713 basket of chips. When I mentioned the blocks name to the spouse he immediately pointed out that Cj’s favorite potato chips are orange, green, and yellow.
Boom, we had a color palette!
Those blocks were so full of triangles that I continued the idea with different triangles in the borders and added a sawtooth block to each corner with a row of teeth around the edge.
Here’s the back. It’s a mix of coordinating prints.
Again, the wind.
