The Versatile Half Square Triangle

I started this project with a charm pack and yardage of Kona Cotton Bone.  In one night, I was able to transform the entire charm pack into Half Square Triangles (HST).  But then it took a week to determine the layout and design.  I was playing with diamonds, flying geese, inverted square — there was no end to the variations!  Finally, I settled on this layout with a diamond center and an echoing pattern.  Tomorrow I will share another project with HST.

With just one charm pack, I made a decent size baby quilt.  I even ventured out of my comfort zone and used an echo quilt pattern.  More to come later in the week with my exploration of using quilting designs beyond my go-to stippling.  Also, I now have name tags for my quilts!  I printed a set on fabric paper and appliqued them to the binding.

  1. Very pretty! Can’t go wrong with that setting.

  2. I love the versatility of HST’s – I’ve been doing a lot of pinwheels with them lately. Love this setting too – may have to give it a shot! 🙂
