Yay! It's Friday! Well, it's Friday for me! One more work week completed! Also, one more quilt completed! I finished my Scrappy Half Square Triangle Quilt! I've learned a few things this week, too. First, working the vampire shift isn't nearly as bad I anticipated. Second, my home phone rings a lot during the daytime..while I'm trying to sleep! Third, I will not quilt my next quilt myself! I found trying to quilt my throw size quilt really cumbersome. That said, I am pleased with how my first "traditional" quilt turned out!
I decided to "echo" the angled lines of the squares. This worked pretty well, but since some of my corners didn't meet exactly, some of the lines look a bit "off." I did straight lines two lines apart on the borders. Again, I used transparent thread. I also used the "fold over" binding method. The backing is the same white fabric that I used for half of the triangles.
I rarely make things for myself, but this quilt is MINE! I used it while napping Sunday. It felt awesome. It is so warm and soft. I love it!
So what's next? I'm thinking Log Cabin...I'm off to find a pattern and fabric!
