Anyone who has looked at my post knows the only triangles I do are HSTs. This was a real stretch for me.
Twenty-five blocks done. We did triangles, half hexagons, parallelograms, diamonds, hexagons and jewels.
All the blocks were made with a Creative Grids 60-degree Equilater Triangle Ruler. Each block was very easy if you followed the instructions. There were a few seams ripped out, but I took my time and worked through each block.
Now it was time to put them together into a quilt. At this point, I wasn’t crazy about the white and grays mixed up. I decided that it would be two quilts, of course much smaller than the pattern. Just the right size for Project Linus.
Here is the first quilt, #37. Surprise, Surprise it is straight line quilted, edge to edge. And with grey and white stripe binding. Once done and washed, I really really like this quilt. I used a leftover piece for backing.
Here is the second quilt, #38. I had ran out of the gray for sashing, so went without the sashing. It give a totally different look and feel. I had a scrap left of some colorful fabric I used for backing. But here are more straight lines, edge to edge.
I am glad to have completed my June OMG and will be linking up with Elm Street Quilts – OMG.
