Have you ever lost days, almost an entire week, when you’re sewing and working on multiple projects? I’m trying to get through the insane amount of UFO’s I have and I’ve lost track of my days.
Our modern quilt guild issued the challenge this month to create a block using half rectangle triangles. Most of us immediately turned to each other and said ‘huh’? I immediately went home and looked at some tutorials and my mind immediately went to my Tula Pink True Colors charm packs that were stashed on a shelf. How perfect would that be for this project?
I immediately got to work chopping up the pieces using the fantastic tutorial from the lovely a.squared.w and it worked like a charm! (No pun intended.) After I sewed all the triangles together I couldn’t resist the rainbow effect it gave.
I started playing around with different ways to put it together and loved the star effect that the layout gave the quilt. I quickly put everything together and I’m so happy with the way it turned out!
I’ll be quilting it fairly quickly to try and enter it in a show so I’ll definitely post pictures when I’m through.
What are your experiences with half rectangle triangles? Do you love them or hate them?
