Science Rules.

This fabric reminds me of one thing:

In particular, the part where the woman is like, "Science Ruuuuuules."

I love this fabric.  It reminds me a lot of our science books when I was in grade school...the cheesy pictures, the limited color scheme...watching Bill Nye...

I made a sample for this from the book Quilt Lab by Alexandra Winston.

My only gripe about this book was that in her effort to be heavy on the math and science theme, it eliminated my ability to use any of the triangle templates I had because the angle on the triangles in the quilt I chose were EXTRA SPECIFIC....there was a decimal in the angle.  It was really more of an annoyance than anything. But because of the amount of cutting I had to do, my accuracy would have been helped a lot by not having to be so cautious with a template plastic template with a proper ruler on top.


But it was my first time doing anything significant with non-half square triangles, and I am fairly pleased with the outcome. Were I to do this over again, I would probably toss in a few other go-withs that weren't in the line instead of sticking only to the pieces in the line.  I feel its awfully white-heavy, but oh well, I like it nonetheless!


I welcome all comments and constructive criticism! All I ask is that you keep it clean and keep it kind.
