This quilter has used the quilting design to great effect. I think this is the second hard decision you have to make when making a quilt. The first is color choices.

Red Pepper Quilts: Giant Scrappy Dresden Plate Block and Tutorial
In each row, the upper triangles (e.g. Navy triangles) are machine appliquéd onto a pieced strip. The rows are abutted so the triangles are staggered, and the result looks like teeth or sometimes diamonds. All the fabrics are heavily pieced prior to this step. Tiny triangles are appliquéd onto the 'teeth'. Complicated method, but playful at every stage. Would be a lot of fun to try. keiko goke sunrise sunset at mt.sankaku
