This quilt was born of necessity. I wanted a quilt that had space for free motion quilting, but I wanted those spaces to be reasonable to fill- and not overwhelming. I am really pleased with the result and it looks great custom quilted or with an Edge 2 Edge design on it.
The version to the right is the Scrappy Background. It can just be totally scrappy or arranged in an ombre layout. I love this quilt because it reminds me of all the different shades of lilacs. They are my absolute favorite flower!
This quilt was the most difficult of the three I made only because the layout of the squares had to be maintained throughout the process.
On the left is the Two Color version of Tri Again. This could look great with any color combination or even with novelty fabrics.
I really like the contrast of this Two Color version- and I enjoyed quilting it with a high contrast thread. In the pattern there are some ideas for how to make a quilting plan.
Last is the Scrappy Accent version of the Tri Again. I really like this one and it went together really quickly because I didn’t have to worry about the placement of the background pieces.
You will need to learn how to make quarter square triangles (hourglass blocks) to complete this version, but there is a tutorial in the pattern.
I hope that you will enjoy this pattern. It is the first in a series of quilt patterns I am making to allow for negative space quilts that are pretty easy to piece, come together quickly, and fun to quilt. The pattern includes instructions for five sizes: baby, throw, twin, queen, and king.
