Peaks shows off the elegance of the half-rectangle triangle shape. Ombre prints create the illusion of depth and space, and the angled quilting moves the eye around the image. Shapes emerge from the background to shimmer, then fade to background. The design is deliberately formal to emphasize the beauty of the pure geometry, while the matchstick quilting makes it soft and touchable.
Peaks is a geometric modern wall hanging quilt measuring 24" x 38". The cover version was made from Maywood Studio Pink-Teal Ombré Multi, MAS11216-203, with cotton batting and Aurifil thread.
This pattern uses two sizes of half-rectangle triangles, placed to create an illusion of glowing lights behind prominent diamond shapes. Instructions include step-by-step directions for creating half-rectangle triangles and detailed cutting and layout diagrams specific to ombré prints. Pressing, quilting, and binding suggestions are included.
