This quilt gives the illusion that the blocks are set on point but they are actually in a horizontal setting. It is the way the color is used that gives the illusion. I have made the quilt with black and white fabrics with a blue color accent but of course red could be the color accent or lime green or yellow. High contrast fabrics make this design work. Half-square triangles are used to create the design. Star and square-in-a- square blocks are used in the border.
I am an avid quilter and when I started using the computer program "Electric Quilt" I fell in love with quilt pattern design. My background is in apparel design and later interior design so quilt design was a natural next step for me. I have a long-arm quilt machine and love the idea of making a quilt from conception to completion.
