Winter Watch

I love half square triangle quilts. There are so many variations and ways to organize the blocks, that it offers endless opportunities for quilt patterns. My latest quilt is an experimentation with half square triangles and color.


When I started working on this quilt I knew I wanted to do a striping effect, so I organized my fabric by color into four similar(ish) color groups: deep purple/blue, bright yellow/red, teal blue/light purple and light yellow/pink.


I moved these blocks around many times because I kept changing my mind. I originally planned to do a half and half look, which is ultimately what I ended up with, but I also tried striping it all together. In the end, I went with my original plan. I think I like it?


I should mention the fabric in this quilt is from different Alison Glass collections. I love her modern take on batik fabrics, something I’m not typically drawn to.


Now I have to start thinking about backing for this quilt. Do I go bold like the quilt top, or something subtler?
