Festival of Half Square Triangles entry

It was a UFO for some weeks. It was hanging on my design wall waiting for the right moment, when I will finally say 'Hey, now I have an idea! I know what to do with it!'. At the beginning it was suppose to be a mini quilt, but then I realised that I don't need another mini. I have already enough hanging on my walls. My Mum was visiting me during Easter and she gave me a marvelous idea on the design (love you Mum!). She also helped me with the colours a bit. 

It will be a lap quilt and it will be a bit bigger than you see now, as I was running out of white fabric at the end (but it's already on it's way to me). Now only white border is missing. All the HSTs are there. The little squares are 2" finished. And yes, there are lots of them in this quilt top (probably I will have enough of HST for some time now, LOL). I have also prepared two pillows matching the design of the quilt, but they have to wait still for the white Kona cotton to come.

P.S. Any idea how to name it? I cannot find anything that sounds right...

Wisialo sobie takie UFO przez jakis czas na scianie. Nie wiedzialam, jak je skonczyc, ani co z tego zrobic. Dopiero moja mama (byla u mnie na swieta) podsunela mi pomysl i pomogla z doborem kolorow. Na poczatku to mial byc mini quilt, ale tak szczerze, to ja juz nie mam gdzie wieszac tych mini quiltow, wiec musialo byc cos innego. Jak nie mini quilt, to wiekszy quilt, haha... Jeszcze troche mu brakuje, bo zabraklo mi bialego materialu, ale wszystkie kolorowe elementy juz sa. Wiec teraz dojdzie jeszcze biala ramka. Beda tez dwie poduszki pasujace wzorem do quiltu:




For the backing I ordered orange Pezzy Print. I think it will fit the geometric design well:

A to material, ktory zamowilam na tyl. Bedzie pasowal do geometrycznego wzoru z przodu:

  3. Spirograph on the half square? Chrysanthemum Flutter-by?

    It is so beautiful, simple and elegant. I think the Kona white makes all the delicate swirling triangles really shine, and the center in divine!

  14. Beautiful. I have been wanting to make an orange and blue quilt. Radiating Blossom or Radiant Beauty.

  15. Beautiful quilt. It reminds me of something coming into focus....like scattered bits of a puzzle that suddenly make sense or the masterpiece hidden in the marble that suddenly has a form.

    Well done.

  17. This is an amazing design Joanna and I love the colours!The HST's look like bits of petals coming off the flower so maybe "Floral Fragments".

  20. Love this! Did you draft the center? Reminds me of the dahlia pattern. Gorgeous color and that back will be perfect with it.

    ReplyDelete
  21. How about "Pollination"? I love the pattern, it does remind of the pollen flying from a flower at this time of year. I've started taking my allergy pills for the first time today. Love your blog because of your designs, this one is just another reason to come back.

  23. Just super po prostu. Nie mogę oczu oderwać.

  24. Teraz wiem po kim masz talent:) dobór kolorów po prostu świetny a jako duży quilt wyglądać będzie znacznie lepiej, bo dodane narożniki świetnie go wzbogaciły. Podoba mi się to czyste zestawienie bieli i oranżów. Jak szyłaś te łuki w środku? i docelowo jaka będzie jego wielkość? Śliczna praca idzie na konkurs?:) Pozdrawiam :)

  25. This quilt is one of the best I've seen in quite a while - very unexpected and so pleasing to the eye. Looks like a top-down or bottom-up view of a large flower bloom surrounded by bits of sky. What I want to know is how is the center done??!! I can see all the HST's, but can't see the center well enough to get that! Great job.

    ReplyDelete
  26. Beautiful! My first thought when I saw it was "petals in the breeze" as it looks like a flower whose petals are flying off in the wind. Or "windswept blossom"

    ReplyDelete
  27. Przepiękny!!! te kolory w połączeniu z bielą wyglądają tak czysto i świeżo. Trzymamy kciuki na konkursie-ten quilt na pewno będzie faworytem:)

  33. Very unique, it's a beauty. It reminds me of blowing the petals off a dandelion, so how about "make a wish"
