HST Overload (Continued)!

Finally some whole quilt pictures of the HST Overload Quilt (although you are probably sick of seeing it!), and with perfect timing to enter the Blogger's Quilt Festival.   If you are a visitor from the festival, Welcome! 




HST Overload Quilt
Finished quilt size: 51 inches x 69 inches

And a picture featuring the quilt back as well as the details of the straight line quilting.


My favorite part of this quilt was definitely conquering the maths for the setting triangles as well as the cropped corners and the accompanied binding.  Writing the pattern for this quilt was another challenge as it required detailed diagrams for layout and setting triangles.  The help of teenagers who are so computer literate came in very handy for this process!


A complete and comprehensive pattern for the HST Overload Quilt is available in my Etsy Store.

Thank you for stopping by!
Rita

  26. Jazzy! I like what you did on the corners, rather than add a partial block.

    ReplyDelete
  27. I love that straight line quilting. What foot do you use and what methods to keep from bunching?

    I do straight line quilting sometimes. I use a walking foot. It works but I feel like I should use something else...

  84. I make my flying geese with 1 rectangle & 2 squares of fabric and sew 2 angled seams so that when I trim the corners I end up an extra HST... and I had been fixated on making pinwheels but this is just perfect for all my leftovers! Great quilt!

    ReplyDelete
  85. Wow that really is bright!
