FIELD of TRIANGLES #2


































So after this triangle quilt, i decided to write a pattern for it.  I made this one as my first try at the lap size version.  And then I had to tweak the layout some more, and made another one.  And another one.  Then decided that I most likely would not make this into a pattern after all.



























Why not?  To make a long story short, too many reasons why it did not make very good first pattern.  Besides that, I'd always rather make more quilts than write a pattern!

























I think I will write a pattern one of these days.  I feel it in there, but maybe not just yet...   Meanwhile, I do really like this quilt.  (did love this quilt I should say, it's already found a new home).

The colors were inspired by this piece of art, which I adore.  And I found these colors really hard to photograph, btw.  I think the second photo is the closest to how it really looks, colorwise.

  4. Great design, I love to see all the new patterns people are coming up with, I love to quilt with bright colors sometimes contrasting them with black even for baby quilts. People thought I was nuts when I first starting making them with black until they saw how it makes the other colors pop where white or cream made the colors paler looking. I so wish I could win the ebook so I can learn some more.

  5. It's just gorgeous but I understand the reluctance to write a pattern. I'm looking at my first pattern and I'm having trouble with getting started… It's a lot of work and less fun than actually making a quilt. :-)

  6. Your post reminds me of that Kenny Rogers song from the Gambler: You have to know when to hold 'em, know when to fold 'em.

    I'm glad you listened to your ♥.

  13. I feel like I have a little bit of pattern writing in me as well. But I never want to dedicated my limited free time to that task. You've said it well.

    This is a beautiful quilt. The artwork you linked to is also fantastic.

  19. I am loving the binding print. I pay closed attention to it just now and it is blue and white strips. Love your dark and light contrast... How's your {Single Girl}? :)

  20. I have been in love with this quilt since I saw your first field of triangles quilt ... I would have loved a pattern, but I understand your choice not to write it -- I hope you won't mind if I make a copycat quilt!! (While crediting you for the inspiration of course!)
