I love the versatility of Half Square Triangles. When Jeni Baker at In Color Order did a HST Block of the Month Quilt Along I signed up and followed along. It was 2012 and I completed the quilt in 2013 but did not do a post on it so I’m sharing about it now.
I chose a collection called Summersault by Erin McMorris for FreeSpirit. I paired it with bright white and the first step is making ALL THOSE HSTs!! I love my BlocLoc ruler. It has a groove that butts up against the seam and allows you to trim the HST square. They also have rectangle and flying geese rulers which I can’t wait to try. You can get them at Fat Quarter Shop or at the BlocLoc website here.
Here are the first two blocks.
And a few more:
I worked along through out the year and finally finished all the blocks.
My favorite long arm quilter, Heidi from Rocky Mountain Quilting did the quilting once I completed the top and here are some shots of the finished quilt.
And a couple more….
I am including this quilt in the donation quilts to Fostering Friends that our Santa Barbara Modern Quilt Guild has adopted as our local charity. We need 30 quilts by May for the foster kids that are “graduating” out of foster care.
Thanks for checking in.
