March 2017 OMG

My March 2017 One Monthly Goal is to sew the half-square triangles (HSTs) together for my great-niece, Rachel’s high school graduation quilt. I cut 144 six-inch squares from Katarina Rocella’s Imprint collection to sew together to make the HSTs. I wanted a random look for this quilt, so initially I blindly pulled two squares at a time out of a bag to form the HSTs. About a half-way through, I changed my strategy and started intentionally putting the squares together to provide more balance to the quilt. Below is a sampling of the HSTs in no particular order:

My plan is to sew the HSTs into groupings of 16 that will form nine large 20 1/2″ square blocks that will then be sewn together to complete the 60″ square quilt top that I will have long-arm quilted next month.

It has been such a pleasure working with this gorgeous fabric collection, and the feel of the fabric is so luxurious. I’m saving even the smallest scraps of these fabrics!

    I do love art gallery fabrics as well. They have such a nice hand to them. I also recently started sewing squares together randomly and I found I wasn’t happy with it. I wanted to spread the colours around a bit. Maybe it works better with less variety.
