Tessellation Style Pillowcase #2 - Fabric Rehearsal

Fabric Rehearsal

Tessellation Style Foundation Paper Piecing Modern Patchwork Pillowcase Puppilalla


The members of the Berlin Modern Quilt Guild are meeting next on 26/09/15 and I hope to find the time to join in the fun. I meant to go along to get to meet follow quilters here in Berlin for some time now. For some reason or other, the previously proposed dates either did not work for me or I got sidetracked by other projects again. In order to be ready and to have a patchwork project to work on, I took an hour on the side to quickly see which fabrics might go with my Tessellation style triangles that are to become a pillowcase soon.

I noticed that, albeit my best intentions to group the triangles together to have them form a self-contained area in line with the original Tessellation design, I catch myself spacing them apart again.

Grouped together they seem to lose their individual character. I can already see that I am most likely going to include some sashing or low volume fabrics to allow the eye some rest and help the triangles pop.

So which fabric and colour do you think work best with the triangles? It is fun to see how each background fabric compliments different fabric pieces within the triangle blocks.
