I have a plan


My plan is to take this fabulous fabric and make some baby quilts.  The print fabric is Water Land by Jessica Nielson for Cloud9 Collective.


I thought I'd start with a Kite quilt, or two.  However, I made an error and only had enough HRTs to make three kites.  You see, I forgot about making HALF of the rectangles top left to bottom right and HALF of them top right to bottom left.


It was back to the cutting mat to fix the problem.  Now they're half and half and I need to true them up.


With Half Rectangle Triangles, truing up is a MUST!  Since I'm not using a pattern, it'll be interesting to see how these all come together.  It's taken me a week to get this far!


The previous HRT quilts I've made started with 4x6" pieces.  I made these 3x5" since I had baby quilts in mind.  I think one of the new quilts will look a lot like this one, the first HRT quilt I made.



May your bobbins always be full,
