I'm excited to post about the HST Pink finish! It was such a fun quilt to make and my first attempt at an entire quilt of half square triangles. I chose a chevron pattern and made it kind of scrappy and while I'm typically not a fan of scrappy I just adore how this one came out. Here's all the details the bold links lead to other posts related to this quilt...
|In early April I joined up with the One Thing, One Week Challenge hosted by Amy at Amy's Creative Side. I did it to get motivated on my Skill Builder Sampler blocks but as a bonus I won the giveaway for the week. It was this fat quarter bundle of super pink fabric. I was excited to get it and then it promptly sat on my shelf for nearly the next five months.|
a lot of interruptions with this quilt. I had to finish my Tetris quilt, then I made some cute booties and a hat for my other friend. Her baby was born on September 7th and by the 19th I had all the squares pieced together.
|It went pretty quickly after that. By the next day, the 20th I had the whole top pieced. I had a bit of a hard time deciding on quilting but I decided to stitch in the ditch along the pink edges to accentuate the zigzag. I asked for advice here on my blog and on facebook and nearly everyone liked that way better.|
|I did the quilting on the 23rd and 24th and after the binding and a quick wash it was ready to deliver on the 25th when I was visiting my friend at her house again.|
