half squared

Just playing around a bit more with half square triangles and these lovely lower volume fabrics. The prints are nearly the same as those in my Trailmarker quilt, but I thought it might be fun to use them again in another design.

Last time I used a bunch of neutral solids, but this time I decided to stick with just white and off white. The layout is completely random – I paired the squares together to create the HSTs randomly and then set all the squares out on the floor pretty randomly. For a second I wondered if I should try and make some sort of pattern, but ultimately I decided I really like letting them fall as they may.

I hope to start working on the backing this week!

And the outtake of the day – my lovely sister who is looking oh so very thrilled at having the job of holding up the quilt!

    Love the colors in this quilt! It’s great when you can take something like a half square triangle and make it so lovely with the right fabrics.
