I still feel that way, but after reflection, it occurred to me that the question was more about what it would look like. If you're looking to reproduce exactly what I did, then no, you can't switch fabrics. It will look different if you use different fabric for the setting triangles than you did for the block background. Using the same fabric floats the blooms on the quilt.
However, if you're not looking to reproduce exactly what I made, have fun with it. I fired up EQ7 and colored the triangles differently to give you an idea what things could look like.
I rather like it this way. If I ever make this quilt again I think I'll choose different facbric for the setting triangles. It's a little less modern, but I like the way the triangles bracket the center. I also like the darker shade of the same color for the binding in the last two examples, to frame and contain everything.
So go ahead, play with color! I'd love to see your finished quilts. Please share! Would it help if I started a Canuck Quilter facebook group?
I like your different versions. Thanks!ReplyDelete
Love this with the yellow setting triangles. Will have to remember that when I make mine next year.ReplyDelete
I like them both ways! ---"Love"ReplyDelete
Very pretty with the soft colors for setting triangles.ReplyDelete
Amazing how just changing that one arrtibute changes the whole quilt! How sweet of you to show how it would look. Happy Halloween?ReplyDelete
It is always nice to see different colour settings. Love the quilt!ReplyDelete
Very pretty, I like the darker. ThanksReplyDelete
Either way looks great to me! This looks like it is perfect for a girls' quilt. Hmmmm.ReplyDelete
Ooh! I like that! The yellow one especially. Who knew...ReplyDelete
The blooms are pretty ♥ReplyDelete
It's always fun to play with different colour layouts, and it never ceases to amaze me what a difference they can make. I love the original but I also love the framing effect of the new versions you posted.ReplyDelete
Hi! You probably haven't thought about this pattern in a while because it is from 2016, but I have been planning to make it since then , and 2018 just might be the year! Actually, I would love me to make it with my block exchange group here on the Kenai Peninsula in Alaska. May I have your permission to share your tutorial and pattern with my group of 12?ReplyDelete
I'm pleased that you would like to make this block with your quilting group. It's a fun block! Please direct your friends to the tutorial online on my blog(look under the tutorials tab)rather than handing out printed copies. Have fun! I'd love to see photos of your finished quilt!Delete
I'm a little late to the party here but absolutely love this block and the on point quilt! This question may be repetitive but can you tell me the size of the setting blocks? I'd like to make this into a queen quilt. Thanks for any help you can provide. Looking forward to following you!!ReplyDelete
Perfecto tutorial !ReplyDelete
Deseando ponerlo en práctica y si haces Grupo en Facebook , me apunto seguro !
I love this quilt but where do I find the pattern? I'd love to make it.ReplyDelete
I saw a video today on FB where you demo the block and now that's disappeared.
Please let me know how to get your pattern. I've searched your site to no avail. Id like to make a queen size.
Thanks so much
I am so excited to start this quilt! Been gathering scraps together! what size are the setting triangles for the on point configuration? Thank youReplyDelete
For the side setting triangles, cut a 15.5" squares diagonally twice into 4 triangles. For the corners, cut 8.75" squares in half once into 2 triangles. Have fun and please send me a picture of your quilt when it's done. I'd love to see it!Delete
Hi there! I started doing patchwork in 2017 and last December saw your spring block for the first time and tried making a sample block. It turned out so nicely I decided that would be the design for my very first king sized bedspread! Well to make a long (3 months) story short... by Easter 2019 it was finished, I just couldn't show it since it was going to be exposed at our annual Quilting Day (I live in Italy, near Venice). Useless to say it was a big hit and was hung up in centerstage, position of honor!ReplyDelete
I used hundreds of different scraps, but all in tones of blue, except for the center flower in pink, two different patterns of whites for the background, and a solid white for the setting triangles. And since I hate throwing anything away, I used those beautiful little triangles that come from cutting the corners off the flower to make a prairie points border! Needless to say I'm in love with the result. Thank you for having shared this lovely block and for having inspired me so!
