Two Color Patchwork Blocks

I was right that the two color version is beautiful!
I posted pictures on Facebook and many quilters asked what pattern I used.
For this simple block this is the pattern - Loving Hugs.
To this block I added then other two rows of triangles.

1'' octagon.

The finished block measures 14''.


Then it was hard to stop! The beautiful fabric is from the Fusions collection from Robert Kaufman.

I thought to make a three block table runner and two pillows.

A one block quilt looks beautiful too.

What do you think? Should I join a few blocks into a quilt? Or make one block pieces?

Pattern coming soon!

WIP- patchwork quilt

A new patchwork quilt.
At first I made this block.

An octagon surrounded by triangles -  from my Loving Hugs quilt pattern.

A little math and then I added one more row of triangles.

And one more row.

I started with a 2'' octagon. The size of the triangles increases exponentially.

The final size of the piece is 28''.

Of course!


Do you remember this old version? I started this with an 1'' octagon and I could add four rows of triangles.

I kept dreaming of a two color version. And I had the brilliant(?) idea to use prints. I thought the prints are beautiful, there is enough contrast, why not?

I hate it and one of the reasons is that the center octagon doesn't contrast with the surrounded fabrics. It could easily be fixed, but I still don't like it.

I wasted two yards of fabric, and that floral is to die for!

On my computer a two color version looks amazing, I have to gather some courage and sew a new version - with the proper fabrics, if I find them in my stash.
