Half Square Triangles ~ Continued

I have had the pedal to the metal for most of the week in order to get this project happening and on it's way to bigger and better things.


This is unfortunately one of those secret projects which I cannot tell you much about.  Sorry!  I am very grateful though to have been given permission to show you some glimpses of progress and  share some snippets of what's keeping me from my regular schedule.


I do enjoy sharing the process with you, and at the very least I hope that these picture have infused you with color, and perhaps even hope that my enthusiasm for the humble Half Square Triangle has been contagious.


The quilt top is just about finished and this time I will be handing it over to the quilter for professional machine quilting. 


Experimenting (playing) with these colors has been anything but a chore and even brought with it some surprising results!  Let's just say I have discovered new favorite colors and color combinations.

I can hardly wait to show you much more of this quilt!  Thank you for being patient.
