My August ‘19 One Monthly Goal is to finish my Tranquility quilt top. That is the name I have chosen to give my adaptation of Robin Picken’s Harlequin Quilt. I purchased the PDF at her Etsy shop, but she now sells both the PDF and paper pattern at the shop on her website. I chose to create paper-pieced templates rather than using a plastic template for cutting out the shapes or a triangle ruler. And I did not follow Robin’s pattern exactly. Except for the borders, my placement of the half-rectangle triangle blocks was more random. I added two more columns and one more row, but using her pattern and Saija Kiiskinen’s lovely take on the Harlequin quilt for inspiration, I was able to come up with a workable design that features the same fabric collection that Saija used, Loved to Pieces by Mr. Domestic, though I used different coordinating Art Gallery Fabrics Pure Elements solids (Tile Blue, Cozumel Blue, Fresh Water, and Zambia Stone). It will be a good size quilt at 75”x76” that I will use on my full-size bed. Below is a pic of the blocks I have sewn into partial rows. It shows 11 of the 19 total columns and 5 of total 11 rows. I’m definitely liking how this project is shaping up.
