This thing is still preying on my mind, so I decided to crunch some numbers and see if I could calculate yardage estimates for making it! 😀 I adore stuff like this, I really do. (Hey, I’m a scientist – clue’s in the blog name! ;)) This post is likely to get pretty mathsy pretty quick, but I’ll do my best to explain my workings and keep it all clear.
I stumbled across Play Craft’s blog while looking for information about Pantone’s Colour of the Year and noted with interest the web-based quilting tools they have available there: Palette Builder, Color Play and Equal. The last one in particular caught my eye, being the lover of equilateral triangles that I am! After poking it for a bit, I decided to see if I can make a quilt from a generated pattern and document the process.
