Still more triangle quilts - Graduate School For Quilters: Design

This is the quilt done by the student who called to tell me she was able to make her panel work. The panel was one of the Strawberry Shortcake characters. She certainly made lemonade out of a lemon!

This also made an attreactive design. It was a kangaroo mother and baby panel. It's hard to tell what these designs started with unless you have seen the panels. The goal of the exercise was to produce an effective design with something you would never choose to work with.
There were many exercises in this class, each teaching something about using different design challenges to create a quilt.

When I came across this photo I thought it looked like the above quilt but it wasn't the same.
Because of the shape of the quilt it gives a totally different shape when it was turned slightly.

If you haven't guessed what the panels for the quilts on my last post were the top one was a Christmas rocking horse and the second one was a hen and her chicks.

This shows the back of the rocking horse quilt. I used a full panel to show what it was cut from for the envelope pocket on the back of the quilt.

I was so hoping that you would show the back of one of these with the fabric used, it's always a wonder to see... Thanks.
