Wayward Transparency - Quilt Top


I have been taking part in Yvonne @ Quilting Jetgirl's free quilt along called Wayward Transparency.  I got a late start to making the quilt due to some other quilting deadlines, but I am happy to have been able to finish up the quilt top in time for the quilt along linkup.

Yvonne creates amazing quilts with a transparency effect and Wayward Transparency is one of my favorites she has created.  You can find all of the information and instructions for the quilt along right here.



For my quilt top I used:

Fabric A - Free Spirit Solids in Yellow
Fabric B - Kaffe Fassett - Shot Cotton in Clementine
Fabric C - Kona Cotton in Lipstick


The quilt top came together very quickly and easily.

Yvonne offers 2 different versions, a traditional setting and an on-point setting (and many different layouts of the blocks within each setting).  

I initially thought I was going to do the on-point setting, but once I had the blocks together, I decided that I really liked the look of the triangles going out on the diagonal so I went with the traditional.  I added a small border to float the design a little more and my top was done!


I am still not sure how I am going to quilt this quilt, but all of the quilts showing up on Instagram #waywardtransparencyqal and on the Quilting Jetgirl Facebook group are giving me some great ideas.  

Thanks Yvonne for hosting such a wonderful quilt along!

  1. I love this quilt -- so fiery! I think it would be really fun to quilt this with something very curvy to contrast with the angular top!
