Bring on the HST's
The Charming Girls are doing a quilt along with Kelly called "Half Pint". Here is mine.. not quilted yet!Notice how the 1½ inch half square triangles embellish the quilt? Well it was one of those steps in a project that you wonder if you are going to finish it, toss it or just ignore it. (I am very glad I persevered) Since then whenever I saw a pattern with HST small or large I would put it back on the shelf. Not anymore! My order is in and the Ta-da save the day .....I am not one who delights in gagets but this, I must admit is on "my never do without list", and I was able to finish my project with minimum fuss. The border has HST and even if they are much bigger(4 inch) I used the TA-Da and they are perfect! This is a project I just finished and donating it to our church for a fundraiser. . It is called "Love Blooms" designed by Heather Mulder Peterson and is in her book Anka's Tresures. I used the line "Legacy" in the Collection Cause for the Cure by Howard Marcus. Agnes wants donate her time and talent to hand quilt it, in honor of her son who was just diagnosed and is terminally ill with cancer .
