The HST OverLoad Quilt Pattern

In response to the many emails requesting a pattern for the Half Square Triangle Quilt, I have obliged and have finished writing just today.  Phew.  Although I can happily sit at the sewing machine for hours on end, staring at the computer screen is a whole other matter.


The finishing touches have also been added to the quilt.  Quilted with the my customary straight lines, outlining the 4-patch blocks and also running a vertical line through the on-point setting of each block. Straight line quilting is slow going, but well worth the extra effort.


The chosen binding fabric is another favorite, a white polka dot on an orange background.  I did not add corner triangles to the on point quilt layout, leaving cropped corners which works really well for this quilt. 


I am very pleased to have finished this quilt, and am already on the lookout for my next project.


You can find the HST Overload Quilt Pattern in my Etsy Store. 


The pattern includes detailed tutorials, as well as all the information required to piece the top and bottom, and side setting triangles of the on-point quilt layout.

Patterns purchased from my Etsy Store are available for immediate download.

All Red Pepper Quilts Patterns are now also available from the RPQ Pattern Store (patterns are sent by email):


Thank you for stopping by.  Happy Stitching!

  3. you left the cut off corners? Oh, I'm so glad - when I saw the top I thought it looked awesome like that, added just one more dimension to an already fab quilt!

    I've had that block circled in my block bible for ages, one of these days I'll get round to making a quilt with it!

  17. I was so inspired by this beautiful quilt that I started making blocks two days ago. For my very first quilt!! It's so exciting. Of course this being my first, I have a small stash/scrap pile so it may take me a bit to finish, but I am loving it so far!
    I have been hoping you would show the back of this quilt because I am curious what it looks like. I totally love the binding, though. It may have convinced me to use the yard of orange full moon dots I've been hoarding.
