Anyone know the name or where to get pattern?

At the end of Fons and Porter -during the last season, I believe - there is a quilt next to the iron ad with light and dark alternating in 3 slanted, jagged points.

Looks easy and fun. I think it would look great with some bright exotic prints with the "jagged-ness". I could probably easily copy the block and paper piece it.

But I'm wondering if anyone knows anything about it? Name or pattern? I'd love to see more examples.

Thanks for any info.

I haven't seen the show, but does it look like the one here?

If that is what it is like, it's the "Pennants" quilt from Kaffe Fassett's book "Glorious Patchwork".

I didn't see the program, but when you talked about a jagged quilt, I thought of Bonnie Hunter's Weed Whacker quilt: click here for info

Thanks ladies...it is the pennants! However, the weed whacker is beautiful, too. Decisions, decisions! Such a world of opportunity.
I knew I could count on this board for answers...it is like you all are psychic.

The pennants SOUNDS hard, but I think that's the author's feeling about paper piecing more than anything else. I do like pp as it is so accurate and I'm not. And I don't mind sitting in front of the tv picking out threads with a new beautiful quilt on my lap..

This has to be the most informative forum - on any subject - on the internet. Thanks again

I instantly thought paper-piecing when I saw that quilt.

The last PP quilt I made (granted it was only wallhanging size maybe 40" by 40") I spent less than an hour with the tweezers getting out the last bits in front of the TV. I spent longer than that hand-sewing the binding. I don't know why it seems such a chore to others, but I it wouldn't keep me from PP. I always use Carol Doak paper, not sure if that makes it tear cleaner with fewer bits? I also tear as I go anything that's about to get stitched behind a seam allowance when sewing sections together.

If it weren't for worry that the ink-jet ink on the tiny bits would someday appear on the quilt surface, I wouldn't bother with them and would just call them extra insulation.

There is now wash-away Paper-piecing paper that you just leave in and it dissolves with the first washing. I haven't tried it.

What if the project is a small wall hanging and will never be washed? Or lets say you do not *plan* to ever wash it by it comes down and gets messed up by the dogs?

I am a Quilter at heart. I love to play with fabrics, patterns and colors. Recently I have discovered I enjoy doing applique. I love making pictures. Using a sewing machine is much easier than counted cross stitch or oil painting for me. I enjoy landscape quilting as well. I am working on my first applique project in the spring of 2014.

Easy-tear paper would make it better; wash away even more so! But I have to assume the washing would take place before the quilt top is "batted and backed"? That might be an issue...hate to wash it before it's all together.

I'll have to look into some easy-tear paper. Our local shop has very little.

LTS, not sure I understand you're question, are you asking about the wash-away PP paper? I haven't used it, and wouldn't choose to for a project I didn't plan to get wet. Most projects can withstand a gentle soak and to be blocked and dried flat, unless something in them is not colorfast. Quilts with lots of free motion embroidery or quilting often need to be dampened and blocked to get them to flatten out and hang straight.

Unexpected events - I can't say I've ever had to fix a wallhanging mishap. I'm not overly attached to any of mine, if the damage were irreparable I suppose I would pitch it and make something new. Lap quilts and kid quilts just get tossed in the washer and repaired. Hopeless holes get appliqued over.

I have had good success with Carol Doak paper. I think I have always bought it from the internet. SoftExpressions (NAYY) usually has good prices, but if I see it on sale for less elsewhere I nab it. I may now have a lifetime supply.

Now y'all have me googling wash-away foundation paper... Now I'm curious about it

You answered my question nicely. I was wondering about the wash away paper for pp and you told me what i wanted to know.
