with Hopscotch and Terrain (and Mr H too of course!)
I just knew that if I got my point colours right then this pattern would sing and really bring out all the pizzazz of Terrain. That’s why I got myself into such a dithering tizzy. Before I started I really thought that Kona coal would do the job, but it just didn’t. It made the terrain fabrics look drab and as I think I mentioned the white/dark grey combo in the stars looked like the chequerboard tiled hallway of a big posh house in England.
The purple on the other hand makes Terrain sing. The fabrics are seriously cool.
It’s making me deliriously deliciously happy. I LOVE these fabrics and I (quite) love the pattern. No, I take that back – I do love Hopscotch. I love the fact that it’s so different – I work with triangles all the time, but never, ever equilateral triangles. A word of warning though – this is not a beginner’s pattern. There are a phenomenal number of points to match all of which are at a 60 degree angle and because of the strong contrast from the white/purple combo if those babies aren’t a perfect match, then they really do stand out like a sore thumb. They really need to be absolutely nailed down perfect…..which they are, of course 😉
(Did I mention that I’m doing a LOT of ripping out!!)
I now have to make a zillion triangles. I won’t be getting into any other mischief for a fair while…
