Succulent Path is a free pattern from Windham Fabric by Sarah Sharp . On my travels this morning it caught my eye. I must still be in Drunkard’s Path mode because this Clamshell pattern is very similar shape. Maybe it was the colours, not sure, but it looks interesting. Lots of pieces, but I think many fabrics, same families makes the party fun.
Now back in 2016, I designed my own clamshell quilt. Mine definitely has fewer pieces, but the colours are similar. I chose the printed fabric first, then found fabrics to blend with it. I find I can’t go wrong that way. I hand cut and machines pieced all the clamshells together. I love sewing curves, but I still need to use pins. Each clamshell was quilted with a different design.
I’m going to look and see if I have any fabrics left over and maybe??? do a Succulent Path… we regularly repeat using triangles in our quilts, why not clamshells?
