I received a note and some comments regarding the quilt hanging in this photo from my last Improvisational Workshop at Fabric Crush. I call this half-square triangle design my “Seeing Value” design. It hangs at Fabric Crush and is constructed entirely from the shop’s collection.
This was the first I ever constructed. The half-square triangle was my first love back when I was a quilting virgin. Exploring value through this simple block certainly helped me absorb the importance value has in creating a successful quilt design (not to mention align seams). If it’s not intuitive to you what makes design work than you can learn through trial and error and some basic knowledge of value. The hst block is a great mentor . The painter learns by painting right?
Half-Square Triangle Class date is Saturday October 9th from 11-4pm (Fabric Crush).
Seeing Value class date is Wednesday October 27th from 6-9 (The Quilting Loft).
I also have an Improvisational Workshop on Strip Piecing and a string block class coming up. You can view the details here.
Have a good week everyone.
