When I first started quilting…it terrified me. I imagined that there was “one right way” to quilt and that if I didn’t know how to do it right….I couldn’t do it. But over the last 2 or so years that I have made quilts I have come to realize two things– (1) There is no right and wrong way of quilting (just ask quilters how they press their seams!) and (2) it doesn’t have to be a perfect quilt to be loved. And this pink quilt is no exception to the imperfect quilt fact—-but I know it will still be well-loved in our house.
I have shown you bits and pieces of this quilt (that was supposed to be a Valentine’s Day quilt) over the last couple of months, but it is finally done and ready to be cuddled into.
All of the fabrics are from the Scrumptious fabric and I am in love with the tiny bias stripes in this line. I have been hoarding them for some more bias projects for summer too.
The quilt itself is a half-square triangle quilt that was made from two charm packs. Here is a half-square triangle tutorial I did awhile back if you need one. I think I love HST quilts so much because the possibilities are endless—pinwheel blocks, hour-glass blocks and so many more! I tend to use HST for 90 percent of my quilting…
I know some people either love garment sewing or quilting….but I am lately finding myself right in between those two categories, which is a weird mix. I am so loving both.
In other news I am trying to tend to Mother’s Day Projects and Teacher Appreciation gifts today….any cool ideas?
