    A good Geometric pattern for geometric fabric

    I'm on a roll this week, playing in my sewing room, pulling fabrics out and saying, "I wonder what this will go with...."
    So I've had this multicolored plaid fabric for a very long time. At one point, I made a couple of zippered cosmetics cases out of it, but hesitated on using it in a quilt. It would need to not 'compete' with other fabrics or be wrong for the style of the quilt.
    Then I found just enough off-white fabric left over from something else, and a deep red that somebody traded to me at one time, and used the pattern called "Pinwheels and Rectangles" by Quilt in a Day publications.

    It went together quickly.

    I'm really surprised how much my husband and son like this one. I think it might be good as a lap rope for someone in a wheelchair, or as a wall-hanging.

    I apologize to those who may get dizzy looking at this!

    Wow! That is fantastic! I tend to not think I like plaids for quilts, and then I see something like your quilt and realize how wrong I am! Just needs the right pattern and accompanying fabrics. Great job.

    That is perfect. Compliments things well.
    Home is where the heart is, and a few scrappy quilts.

    It's the perfect pattern for using plaid. I'll have to bookmark this one because I hesitate from using plaid. It is always so hard to keep the pattern lined up but with this one it doesn't matter. Great Quilt!
