Yes, I too am wondering what the pattern was called, as well as why you threw it in the trash. What you're re-designing is going to be lovely, and unique.

What a cool pattern!!! Although with all those bias edges, I'd probably go through a whole bottle of starch, lol. Can't wait to see yours finished!

Years ago I was at a quilt retreat with about 15 quilting friends. Someone had brought a really cool-looking pattern; the blocks resembled mid-century modern lava lamps. With such simple shapes, you would think that it would be a very easy pattern to work up. Oh no it absolutely was NOT. She was struggling with assembly, and eventually all of us ended up not working on our own projects; instead we all tried to help her figure out the instructions and pattern for her quilt. We estimated we had over 150 years of quilt experience in that room, and we all worked together for over 90 minutes to try and figure it out. She ended up ripping all her seams out and re-assembling it in a way that made more sense to all of us, and that plan actually worked. After that, anytime I saw someone considering purchasing that pattern, I happily butted my nose in, strongly advised against the purchase and explained why.

You are so brave to put it up on the board to hang/design it. With all of the bias it is stretching it. Don't you think so?

Pattern name is Adventure Awaits by Jessica Swift. She designed fabulous pantograph patterns. So seeing a pattern by her, I jumped before thinking

The short version is I’d make these changes;
1. Shorten triangle to 4” finished
2. Reshape triangle to 45’ angle at top point, it’s not equilateral triangle.
3. Buy plastic template for this angle
4. Make paper templates for 2x 3x 4x 5x, to cut 1 piece for multiple triangle.
5. Limit size of quilt to 68x48”
6. Make mock-up for placement of rockets/jet’s/arrows whatever they are.
7. Have .5 yds for each accent fabric. Don’t prewash, it uses every 1/8 inch.

Because Jessica made such fabulous panto patterns, I expect only good things from her.

Free pattern is here, for those interested. https://www.artgalleryfabrics.com/pr...e%20Awaits.pdf

I'm surprised by your statement that the triangle is not equilateral. It sure looks equilateral in the pattern.

Default The bottom

yep. This is the bottom. Pinned to the design wall. It does look like arrows. And nuclear energy symbols at x-ray machines.

now to sew in the background. Then all the rows can be sewn together.
