CQ Triangle block finished, Sad Looking




After much thought I started working on my first CQ triangle block for the "Crazy Quilt Of My Dreams" yesterday. The theme of this Crazy Quilt is Hearts and Roses. There is 6 triangles to be crazy pieced. So my thought was I would piece 3 of these block to give a look of a rose bud or rose. The other 3 triangles I would piece to give a look of hearts. All 6 of the pieced triangles need to give an overall look of creams and lights fabrics to go along with the other pieced hexagon. Sadly I did not get the look I wanted. So I will try again. I have searched for examples of CQ pieced roses and hearts with no luck. Can anyone direct me to some ideas. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Hi, in the far past I have made sunflowers in crazy piecing. I think your patches are to large. When you make the patches smaller than you can sew more in a circle to create a flower. On my Flickr page in the album quilts is a photo of that quilt.
Good luck, I like the colors!

I think it is lovely, Judy. The only suggestion I would make is alternate pink, cream, pink, cream as you add the fabrics. You may be dissatisfy because all of your shapes are the same and moving in the same direction.
I love the color combo and the roses.

It looks more or less like an open rose to me. Could your embellishing emphasize that as you stitch?

As a non-quilter, my opinion is probably not helpful, but if you really, REALLY hate it, just send it to me, and I will take good care of it! LOL!
I will put beads all over it for you.
