So I FINALLY started cutting up my Les Fleurs fabrics. I’ve had the plan for a while now, but never actually cut into the fabric.
And by plan, I only mean I wanted a Half Square Triangle quilt…. I still haven’t decided on the layout yet.
Click through for a few ideas!
I bought 4 Charm Packs and a Fat Quarter Bundle. The Charm Packs were sliced into triangles, and then I cut the fat quarter bundle down to 5″ squares, then triangles.
For the contrasting fabric, I’m using Essex Linen in Natural. I’m in love. I want to make everything out of linen.
I’m not looking forward to all the ironing and trimming involved with HSTs, but it should be worth it 🙂
Now to decide on the layout… So many quilters make beautiful patterns out of HSTs, and I can’t decide which one to make! I’m leaning towards a simple layout, not a block repeated over and over.
I have enough triangles to make a queen sized quilt! So I’m really excited to have this on a bed someday! Now if I only had enough patience to finish such a large project!
