My favorite thing about Half-Square Triangles is the possibilities they provide! When Heartland, Pat Bravo's newest fabric collection for AGF arrived last week, I knew right away I wanted to combine these colors and designs with my new Nightfall fabrics. Look how pretty!
I pulled a healthy stack of prints, adding in a little Fleet & Flourish, Tapestry, and randoms from my stash to create a colorful bundle of the peachy-pinks, bright & warm yellows, and various shade of blue I'm loving these days. Such a beautiful beginning needed an equally pretty plan, and so I started making HSTs, again!
I divided the assortment into two groupings -- yellows with blues, pinks with the rest, and I got to work! An assembly line of cutting, stitching, pressing, and trimming...
Once I had a good amount of HSTs all finished, I started auditioning quilt block options. There really are so many, but it didn't take too long for me to settle on this pretty star block. I'm unsure of it name? So if you happen to know, please share! I think a pretty star is the perfect match to the theme of these fabrics!
These scrappy blocks sew up to a large 18.5" square -- fun! I'm going to enjoy working on this one! I'll be back soon to show you how the yellows & blues sew up!
