The more I quilt, the more I fall deeper in love with the triangle. At first, it was an intimidating foe, those three pointy sides. Now, it is a welcome symbol of versatility and design freedom. The other thing I am overjoyed to integrate into my quilting is value. For me, it's more of a feeling than anything I can define but it is usually summed up as, the difference between light and dark color intensity. The contrast between light colors and dark colors in the photos below is what makes the design appear to your eye. The dark colors appear to move into the foreground and the light colors recede.
DID YOU SEE THAT?! 6 different designs made from the SAME 1/2 square triangle blocks! Maybe I don't get out much, but THIS is the kind of art-magic that I LOVE! And notice the versatility of the 1/2 square triangle blocks - triangles, I'm telling you, best shape EVER.
Now, which design do I choose for the quilt?
And, special thanks to my most supportive assistant.
