300+ Half Square Triangles set on point.
100+ different fabrics.
It's been some time since my last Half Square Triangles quilt project [and I have made quite a few (here and here and here and here - way back in 2009)] and it felt like it was time to revisit the HST unit with a not quite low volume selection of fabric combined with a variety of neutral solid fabrics (much like the Strips and Bricks Quilt made in 2010).
From a selection of more than 140 different printed fabrics I have made 300+ Half Square Triangle units, each one laboriously trimmed for accurate piecing. Although not immediately obvious from these images the HST units have been set on point. For most directional printed fabrics (fabrics with a design that have a definite up or down) I have tried to ensure the "correct" placement of the print by cutting fabric on the bias (off grain).
Quilt top measures 64 inches x 86 inches.
Thank you for stopping by,
