    Looking at Jennifer Bowker's Shimming Triangles pattern at Crafty

    Has anyone tried this? Love to try, I did purchase the pattern but have my doubts if I can get the right flow going so it shimmers in the light. Suggestions, maybe if you made it, could you share some pictures of it? Thanks in advance.

    I haven't tried that pattern, but I really like it. I'd love to find a class in the area for that quilt.

    Yes, Tall chick, that is the right pattern for the quilt. I have purchased it and downloaded because I admire it so much. But can I really do it? Crafty has given lessons, maybe I can take a class in it sometime. Has anyone taken the classes?

    Perhaps if enough people contacted Craftsy asking for a class on it they might be inclined. On the flip side perhaps a local quilt shop could be convinced to have a class on it? I love this pattern and it’s been on my wishlist, I find I enjoy more in depth patterns provided they are well written. Or maybe get a bunch of friends together and have your own class, after all the more the merrier and it helps to have others point of view too when we get stumped.

    I think a quilt store might be a good idea; its the choice of fabric that makes a difference...although I can match colors, I am unsure about the 'shimming' combo effect. It is a challenge and it keeps calling me!

    layout is really important. I did mine without a pattern and wanted to keep all my larger blocks whole. I plan on doing another some day.

    My name is Cathy - and I'm addicted to old sewing machines and their attachments.

    Craftsy also had a quilt for sale awhile ago called Echoes by Jinny Beyer. I did buy the kit when it was on sale. I still haven’t made it but Jinny’s Looks much easier than the other one. I’m enclosing jinny’s closeup as you can get a better idea what it’s made up of. Name:  3E600B38-E22A-47BB-9BCA-C26D554CB440.jpeg

    Those kinds of patterns make my eyes go out of focus. It probably has to do with my motion sickness but I just can't look at one long enough to tell what it is really all about.

    What cool patterns! I see eight pointed stars with hourglass centers where four blocks come together.

    It is amazing, Macybaby, how the grey makes the quilt 'shimmer'. Well done. Thank you for sharing; think I will tackle that one next summer, after I complete a few more quilts that I have started.

    Maureen NJ, I love Jenny Beyer and her fabrics and her patterns. I have ordered and have two kits to do on my bucket list. My dream is to be able to order the whole fat quarter collection of hers for $$$. That is a dream not a thing that will likely happen any time soon. Maybe never, but I can dream. You are right, pictures look similar.

    Maybe you could inquire of Craftsy whether the pattern includes advice on fabric selection. Some patterns do.

    Beautiful pattern. I just bought Elsie M. Cambell's book Radiant Quilts, somewhat like your pattern QuiltingNinaSue.

    I ordered it from Connecting Threads and love the quilts. But I am intimidated by the patterns.
    SEW MUCH FUN!
