Haphazard

Haphazard is a modern pattern made of randomly generated half-square triangles of 2 different sizes. Here is a sample:

This pattern is part of my collection of dynamic patterns. Instead of telling you the exact layout, you get to choose your colors and various options and have the computer randomly generate a pattern for you.

1: Choose the finished size of your block. Each block is made of either one large half-square triangle or 4 small half-square triangles.

2: Choose the # of blocks for your quilt.

3: Choose up to 10 foreground colors.

4: Choose up to 10 background colors.

5: Choose the ratio of small triangles to big triangles. 0 means all small triangles, and 100 means all big triangles.

6: Click to generate your layout as many times as you want. Once you're satisfied, click to save it.

  6. Love it! I've been looking for a pattern to use with donated fabrics, and I think I'll use your program to calculate the cutting. I might just use the "pull a block out of a paper bag" method for the actual layout, though :)

  14. Hi Liz, I've just tried to use your pattern generating for Haphazard and I don't seem to be able to chose the colours or generate a pattern. I've done this many times before. Is there something different I should be doing.
    Thanks Linda cozy-quilts.ca

  16. Hi there, it doesn’t seem to be working. Does it work on Ipad?

  17. Hi Liz! I love this program. Is there a way to make the layout longer than wider? i.e. 6 x 8, 8 x 10, etc?

  18. Hi Liz, was wondering if this great program can also generate longer than wider layouts? (4 x 6, 5 x 7, 6 x 8, etc.)
