First Triangle quilt..............

Back in March I started designing a quilt while I watched TV.  It will have four different size triangles in it.  I designed a second quilt too which I will show in a few days.









This will be made in rounds rather than rows so here is the center section.












Then I made two side sections and sewed them on.  So far this is 2" and 3" finished size triangles.











Then I made four sections with 4" finished triangles.













I sewed them on last night and then chose the triangles for the last row top and bottom of 4" triangles.  Next will be 6" finished triangles which I put up on the left to see how they will look.  These are all batiks, scraps that I cut into triangles with my die cutter and then store them in a box until I come up with an idea for them.

I love this! I've been toying with a similar idea, but with only two sizes of triangles.

What is your planned size for this quilt?

Mary said...

This reminds me a little of a project I'm working on, but it's all paper pieced. So, I'm really interested to watch your progress!

I like it! Too few people play with size as a design element, I think. But you do!

Great design...I love the mix of sizes.

Love seeing the progress from 'idea' on paper to idea on the wall.

I have used my die cutter for "scrap busting" and made lots of triangles. I was doing some cleaning this past weekend and found them stored. Some are sewn and some are not sewn. I need to plan a project with them.

This is an interesting quilt! You sure are using up your scraps!

This is so great!! Love all the triangles. Designing something with so many sizes and getting them to meet is hard for math challenged me. I think the colors and sizes are so great. Love the center is not square, but rectangular. Just so gorgeous!!

Gorgeous! I love the different sizes together.

I love this quilt....however the fabric with the checks bothers me a little bit. It draws my eye. You know I am no expert on fabric colors and designs so I will see how this works out.

I would love to try something like this - I too have thought about using the half-square triangle in different sizes.
Love it.
And your fabrics are always so lovely - you truly do inspire me, and I send everyone I know to your website or blog.

Loving this extravaganza!
Thanks once again to you for helping me out and identifying the block on my blog. What would I do without you?

Oh, I can't wait to see this one. I never would have thought about this idea.

Purple Pam said...

Your process is great. I have a friend who draws out patterns and she, like you, comes up with great designs. I know this one will be another winner.

In one of those optical illusion things our eye sometimes does, each new size section appears to add a new level of depth to the project. Look forward to seeing this one done.

Beautiful use of scraps! Terrific design idea.

Cathy said...

What a great idea and a lovely use of your scraps. I have so many HST’s that I may borrow this idea! I love your blog so much!
