Back on track

It's taken me a bit of time to get started on a new quilt.  I'm super excited about this one.


I won these fat quarters months ago, and was just waiting for the right idea to strike.  Finally just before my last vacation, I pretty much decided on a Half Squar Rectangle quilt.  I'd pinned a great tutorial for cutting HSRs, here.  I've already cut, sewed, lots of chain piecing, slashed and trued up my HSR's  Truing up is a must for these babies.  I started with 5 x 7" rectangles, and now they're 4.5 x 6.5".  I decided on bright Kona white as a background fabric.  Here's some shots of the layout on my dining room table.

I tried different layouts, but I really like the flow of this one.  I kept the placement as random as possible by shuffling the pieces I was working on at each step; instead of keeping them in order like I usually do.  Now, off to the sewing machine.
May your bobbins always be full,


  1. I like the colour selection and the pattern, random is always more fun =D

  2. Great design! I don't think I've ever seen this layout before.
