Patchwork Essentials: Radiant Quilt

Wednesday, August 15, 2018

Time to share another quilt from my book, Patchwork Essentials: The Half-Square Triangle! You can find all the posts about my book, Patchwork Essentials: The Half-Square Triangle, in the MY BOOK link at the top of every page, or here.

I'm slowly going to share each quilt, in order, with the exception of a few that I've already shared. So, first up we'll be looking at the quilts in the color chapter, the last one to share is Radiant!

For more on how the book is structured see this post.

This quilt was such a fun one to pull fabrics for. I made it back in 2014, before low-volume and black and white prints were super popular. I had to slowly build up a collection of enough prints for this quilt! Seems hard to believe now. I paired all the black and white prints up with a rainbow selection of blender prints.

This quilting is a simple edge-to-edge geometric design done by Melissa Kelley of Sew Shabby Quilting. Since there is a lot going on with the colors and prints, I knew I wanted the quilting to be pretty neutral.

For the backing and binding I pulled for more black and white prints, including some beloved yardage of Seed Catalog from Lakehouse and a geometric from Minimalista.
You may remember last year I shared this baby quilt that I made from an alternative colorway of this quilt! See more about this quilt here.

Happy Quilting!


  1. Lovely quilts all! hugs, Julierose

  2. I love the versatility of the HST and your book has so many wonderful ideas. Your explanation on selecting fabrics/colors and the charts on the beginning/finished size of blocks is a great help!

  3. The original is pretty and that baby version will be treasured!

  4. Jeni, both of these quilts are very pretty.
    I love the color choices, very soothing and vibrant too though
    I have your book and I have shared it with my daughters...They do not have the quilting bug, but they do like to tell me what to make... hmmm about that too.

  5. I bought your book when it came out and it is my go to book for anything triangular or just because I love it!
