If Pantone had a parade, I feel these would be their colors.

Erica, how do you go about laying out your half-square triangle quilts? They are all so beautiful and so well-balanced with color and movement. As a newer quilter, I'm still trying to figure out the process and would love any advice you have to give me.

Hey Kels! You are a 'no-reply' blogger...attach your email to your account so bloggers can respond to you directly :) In the chance you stop back, I will answer your question here:
First, welcome to quilting! It is super satisfying and highly addictive (at least the fabric shopping part).
With these kind of quilts I use a really scientific method to lay out my quilts...I stand back and 'blur' my eyes to screen for visual weight, in contrast and color. The movement, I surmise comes from the fact that this randomness doesn't allow your eye to rest. Positioning half-square triangles at various angles, with high and low contrast colors touching promotes visual excitement (in my opinion). Hope this helps! good luck and I hope you find years of enjoyment in your quilting adventures!

Thank you, Erica! I am so excited to join the league of quilters! And to maybe try my own colorful half-square triangle quilt with the "squint" method ;) Also, thank you for the heads up on being a no-reply blogger.

Hey Erica, I'm wondering how big your squares are? 2x2? And how big your quilts are well at least how big this one is? I am possibly interested in this as a custom quilt some dimensions would help me with a visual and also what kind of fabric do you use? Im looking for a soft thin quilt...not stiff! hope ya see this.

Hello!! :) beautiful quilt, I'm looking to get started making my first quilt and love the triangle modern design, can you help me with your square sizing and also, what is a good type of fabric to use...thank you so much in advance, I love all your half square colors and designs....and love the 'blurring of the eyes' effect as I do that all the time with my white lights at christmas time to be sure they are in the perfect spot!! best, michelle

My mother in law plans to help me make this for my baby boy on the way. What fabric did you use and is it available for purchase online? Any info would be great!

Thank you!
