"Crazy Town" - A Triangulation Challenge - Project Quilting Season 9, Project 2

Triangulation is the second challenge of 
for
Project Quilting.

My entry is
Crazy Town




She announces a challenge and you have one week to create something quilty.
Prizes can be won and it's a great way to meet new blogging friends.

The challenge this time is Triangulation.  The project is to be primarily made (as much as possible) from and characterized by triangle shapes.  The one with three sides.

Right away I knew I wanted to do a triangulated self portrait and I downloaded the coolest program, Dmesh, that generates pictures into triangulation patterns.


Then life happened and time required a plan B.
I wandered upon a web site with so many polygonal pictures, I'll be making so many quilts...
I've seen quilts created from the pictures on FreePik, like this one.

Wouldn't that one be fun?

I was inspired and happened upon a butterfly.

I redrew it in EQ7 and printed my pieces with the best product for fusible applique,
HeatNBond EZ Print Lite  (No tracing)!!!!!



I've had a bundle of Prism Elements by AGF that I've been hoarding holding on to for the right project.

 I had to go out of town, so I fused all those little triangles to the fabrics and took them with me to cut while i was away.  


All that was left was assembling the triangles.
With tweezers and an awl, the little pieces were arranged and fused.



I wanted a different background, so the butterfly was cut out and spray basted to it's new fabric. 
 The quilt sandwich was made and then all those little pieces were stitched with



Labeled and finished in time.
