coming along

The newest project is a half triangle square sampler quilt that may have the record as the fastest project. I started on it last week and have 9 of the 12 blocks done (I just finished #9)!  I really enjoy working with half triangle squares and this one is so much fun with the different oranges, purples, and browns.  I am hoping to finish up the rest of the squares tomorrow and then start the sashing on Friday.

I am using block of the month tutorial at In Color Order for the patterns, although I am switching out 2 of her blocks for a couple of different ones.  I watched it last year, promising myself that I could start on it after Christmas gifts were all done.  The goal is to cover my guest bed!

Linking up with Freshly Pieced!

  1. I really really like what you have going on here. The colors and patterns are wonderful! I am glad you like HSTs so much... did you just make a big giant batch of them and now you are working your way through them block by block?

    1. Thank you! My fabrics started as a fat quarter (blogger) bundle from pink castle fabrics that I sliced up into my squares. From there, I picked out my colors for each block, so I had 12 little piles and I have been working on them 2 or 3 at a time. I have a whole pile of leftover squares that I can use for my quilt back. :) Thanks for asking!

  2. Very pretty. Love the colors and variety. Nice!

  3. Hi, i came over from WIP Wednesday. Your blocks look awesome together and the fabric choices and colours are great. I'm making a sampler quilt and have been pulling blocks from all over blogland, i needed a few more designs so thank you for sharing the link! :o)
