Rearranging Triangles

I love that stage in working with Half-Square Triangles (HST’s in quilt language) where you can totally change your design and make all kinds of crazy patterns.

Like diamonds!

Or some kind of flying geese/chevron hybrid!

Or maybe a more centered diamond. Yesss….

I wanted these to look like stained glass, or more quiltily – like when you hold an unfinished quilt top up to the light and you can see all the seams. I love the way that looks, and am trying to replicate it.

The problem with these lovely triangles is that it makes me want to make ALL THE QUILTS! Too many options can be a bit crippling?

My fabric is Moda Reunion line – which is very trendy, let me tell you! With good reason, because it is so nice. Lots of grays and mustards and chartreuses and bricks, which are the best colors as of the last year or so, don’t you agree?

I’m linking up to other people creations at Sew Modern Monday and Sew Happy Geek. I’d love if I can get this top finished by next week – not quilted or anything!  So I am pledging it via One Thing One Week.

    Fantastic! I love this fabric collections too. When I saw the little photo on Canoe Ridge I thought it was one of those light-shining-through-the-back photos!

    While all are cute, I also like the centered diamonds the best. And I too LOVE the line and colors from reunion!! Another hit for Sweetwater in my opinion. Great designs

    This looks so much fun (though I see the potential for crippling decisions)! I, too, love the look of quilting against light. Great to see you going for it. 🙂
