The pattern and triangles for Stardust can be found in the Isosceles Triangle Section. For this section, instead of having numerous blocks to play with, I wanted to limit the blocks patterns (there are *only* 16) in order to play with repeating pattern in the quilts. You can maybe see some repeating pattern in Stardust, but other quilts exemplify this a bit better. I’ll show those quilts in the next few weeks.
There are 2 sizes of the Isosceles blocks, large and small. Stardust uses the larger 12” triangles.
For the Isosceles section, I used a vibrant blue and pale peach palette, like this one. (The full palette information can be found within the pages of the book.) It’s such a fun palette to work with, full of subtle drama.
Coming off of using ALL the colors in Modern Rainbow, it was quite hard to choose only a few colors. But once I got to the Isosceles section, which was the last section I worked on, I felt I had found my color stride. I absolutely still love this color palette!
With this quilt I wanted to play with the weight of the negative space balanced with by grouping of Triangles. I tied the negative space and the focal points together with the quilting. You can see here how I carried the triangle designs over to the dark blue negative space by using similar quilting motifs.
Stardust measures 62” x 72”. The triangle block patterns and quilt pattern are found in Modern Triangle Quilts.
