The final fabrics were edited down to the following 14 with the darkest and the bluest fabrics being removed:
My interpretation of a Zen quilt was for it to be calming and simple without a busy pattern so I chose half-square triangles. Here is one-quarter of the quilt sewn in rows:
My original intention was to join the quarters together with the dark sides of the triangles all on the bottom right but when I was playing around, I decided I really liked it best with each quarter rotated 90 degrees with all the dark triangles pointing to the outer corners and the lighter triangles pointing to the center. Here is a picture of it completed and hanging on the line:
I quilted it with white thread on my frame with my domestic sewing machine:
The pantograph I used was called Ginkgo by Jessica Schick by Digi-Tech which I thought went well with the Zen theme. You can see the texture of the quilting on this background shot:
You can also see the two triangular pieces of fabric attached to the upper corners which serve as the quilt label and can also be used as pockets for a rod if the quilt were to be hung up. I bound it using half width of fabric pieces of four of the mid-tone fabrics so the binding would blend in and add to the Zen factor.
I realize I forgot to take pictures of the two cushions. If I receive a picture of the quilt and cushions in their new home, I will be sure to post it.
