Nightfall & HSTs : :

Today I'm working on a HST, half square triangle, project for next month's Quilt Market show in Salt Lake. I'm running out of my Nightfall sample piece strike offs so fast, which means making even the tiniest scrap pieces stretch into something!

Nightfall Scraps

For this project, I began by centering several squares of Nightfall scrap pieces, lining them up as shown above, and then I simply started surrounding them with HST's made using Art Gallery solids in some of my Nightfall colors. I haven't decided on a solid plan for these blocks just yet, but I love the look of the two ready to be finished!

These colors having been really nice to work with! I love bouncing back and forth between sewing with these new, cooler prints & colors and my current, more brightly colored Fleet & Flourish collection. It's a lot of fun and feels pretty surreal most sewing days!

Once I pieced together the first block, I taped it up to my sewing room window, to delight in the new and to watch the light come through, while I decide what they might become.

I'll be back to share once they're finished!
