Back to the triangle quilt........

I made 6 more blocks last night, 3 each of 2 combinations of fabrics.  They are on the ends of the first 2 rows.  If you click on the picture and enlarge it you can probably see where all 6 of the blocks are.  I am glad I added the gold/orange because the quilt has little life now.  I thought it was too dull before.  I just have 2 more combinations of two fabrics to choose and I think a really rich purple should be one of the fabrics.

As it is on your wall it reminds me of an old-fashioned herbaceous border under a tree that cast its shade here and there. Beautiful with lots of life

It looks gorgeous! Maybe it's just me, but when I look at the smaller triangle squares (the squares made up of 4 HST blocks) I see fish. The first three triangles (the points) are the body, and the last of the dark triangles is the tail. :)

Looks good. The overall look is very pleasing to eye. Sure wish I had a design wall. The bed is my design wall until we have to go to bed at night. Chris

it sure takes awhile to put quilts together that have so many pieces doesn't it. You have to keep standing back and looking at it for color and then back to the machine for piecing. It sure is looking good.

Great additions. And my mind immediately went to adding a few darks as well. We would be a force to reckon with if we ever got in front of a design wall together!

I agree the gold/orange does give it a nice glow. This piece has such depth in each block.
