Here's February's quilt plan! I've admired solid half-square triangle quilts for quite a while, and thought it would be a good option for our circle's quilt. Here are a few samples of quilts like I have in mind . . .

HST Festival

a quilt for harry.

hst love done

The colors I have in mind are white, medium gray, and a variety of cool colors. I'd like each of you to make two 18 1/2" blocks, each made up of four 9 1/2" blocks. Feel free to place them in a variety of configurations. Here's some samples:

A tutorial for half-square triangles can be found here, EXCEPT start with two 10" squares to make two 9 1/2" hst's.

Let me know if you have any questions.

AND...if anyone needs any solids, let me know. We'll get you hooked up with whatever you need. I just know not everyone has the vast array of solids that I do. :)

Debbie, this is going to be really gorgeous!

Oh how fun! I'm kind of not awesome at figuring out warm/cool colors...mostly sticking with blues and greens? Anything else? Is lime green ok?

I could use some of those colors. Most of my solids are on the hot side at the moment. Maybe I will see what my local shop has.

Let me know if you want me to send some - do you have the gray and white?
Thanks, Debbie!
shaggy stone [deleted] 6 years ago
Deb, I have white & turquoise. I think I can get some gray at my local shop. Lemme see what else I can find before you send any. It'll be a good excuse to go shopping! :) Besides I need to get the supplies to finish the January quilts.

Oh this is going to be awesome! Easy but with an amazing result. I think I have enough solids to get me going on this. Thanks for another great quilting opportunity!

For some reason, I can't add photos to the group's pool - doesn't follow the rules of the group?
Blocks 1 & 2, in the mail tomorrow Deb.

Hey debbie! What about a cool gold?
admin
aquilterstable PRO Posted 6 years ago. Edited by aquilterstable (admin) 6 years ago
I trust your judgement! Funny - there's gold in all of the examples above and it's a nice contrast.

& Your blocks came today! Getting excited about this quilt!

I got my blocks finished tonight! I am not sure when I will be able to mail out, my brother has my car for a bit. If not Friday then early next week!
admin

Sounds good!
SoapsByMareMare 6 years ago
So I ended up making 5 sets worth of small blocks instead of 4 so I'd have more room to play around with the settings. So I have an extra 2 small blocks, do you want me to send them along to use on the back or something?
admin
aquilterstable PRO 6 years ago
Sure! I purposely did not sew my small blocks together yet, so I can distribute them as I want around all the big blocks that come in. Yours would give me even more flexibility, so thanks!
