The Lady of the Lake Quilt
449 Half Square Triangles!
(I totally shocked myself with that number, no wonder it took so long to piece and then trim back everyone of those tiny blocks!)
The solid fabric used in this quilt top is by Reece Scannell, and purchased at the Australian Quilt Convention earlier this year. Their fabrics are very much like shot cottons; the warp and the weft are different colors creating subtle color effects. Reece Scannell fabrics are sold by the piece rather than yardage from a bolt and available in over 100 hues.
Unintentionally and barely noticeable I have ended up with my own "humility block", with a set of Half Square Triangles sewn together incorreclty. * marks the spot. Even though I had noticed this error before the blocks were sewn together, I did not correct the orientation of those triangles. A little quirky piecing adds a little interest.
I have also pieced a very simple quilt backing using some of the left over solid fabrics. Just for fun. (See above).
The batting has been soaked and tumble dried. Ready for basting.
