I made this quilt late in 2008, using some of my favorite designer fabrics, focusing on the the colors red, orange, green and blue, and alternating each color with a solid white stripe. It was pieced by making Half Square Triangles. (Here is just one of the many great Half-Square Triangle tutorials - this really does help to make the piecing process so much easier).
I also pieced the back using more of the same fabrics and keeping them in their blue/green and orange/red color range. The back of this quilt was inspired by Denyse Schmidt quilts.
The finished quilt measures 49 inches x 63 inches and each finished half-square triangle block measures 3.5 inches. I quilted this quilt by practicing for the first time my "in the ditch" quilting. Not easy, could use some more practice!
