A Quilt For Me



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!

Tootles!

Wow, girl, you are going full guns! I LOVE your half-square triangle quilt. You did an AWESOME job...and I think you did a great job with the quilting, too. I haven't been brave enough to try the actual quilting part, and I don't have any plans yet to start! LOL! I'm very uncoordinated...so can only imagine how it would turn out.

Can't wait to see your next one. Here's a link to help you get started looking for patterns:
