Design Wall Monday

432 Half Square Triangles later:


This is my first Quiltmaker's Magazine "Scrap Squad" assignment.  I foolishly decided to make a queen-sized sample, requiring 72 blocks.  Each block has six HSTs.

Whew.

I have all the blocks pieced, but not quite sewn together.  I'm using leftovers from an old Moda University project made of "Chocolat" by Three Sisters for Moda.  I did buy the background fabric, when I decided one part at least needed to be consistent.


I'm planning to gift this one to my nephew in Idaho.  Only 54 more blocks to go!

  1. That's a lot of HST's, it will be lovely when you're finished though!

  2. Love it. Of course I love anything with HST's. I wish I was sewing....but nope still unpacking the sewing room. So far 6 huge boxes of fabric put up and I can't count how many boxes left to go. Maybe by February I will be sewing again.
