Helen's inspiration: "I've always liked half square triangles, the design possibilities are endless. But I like to give an old idea a new twist so I added the floating inset squares to give little flashes of unexpected colour to the otherwise uniform side of this block. The name sprang from the shape of the triangles which made me think of the pointe shoes worn by ballet dancers."
In the designer's words: Helen Butcher discusses the importance of colour, tone and weave in choosing fabric for her patchwork designs.
