Half-Square Triangle Quilt
The current project on my cutting table is a half-square triangle quilt for myself. A couple years ago I made a quilt for my daughter with a minky backing and it is super-warm. I concluded that I had to make one for myself.
The original idea was to make this a scrap buster quilt. Then I started piecing my 2.5" squares and realized it would take me forever. And because I want the little blocks to line up perfectly, I am squaring them at at 2". So now I am revamping my design. I will do 12" blocks of the 2" half-square triangles and put them together with bigger half-square triangles.
I'm about a quarter of the way done squaring up the blocks, but I still have a small pile of new triangles to make because I ran out of the grey contrasting fabric and had to order more. I can't wait to start piecing these into bigger blocks!
