|Half Rectangle Triangle Quilt Top|
57 inches x 82 inches.
315 Half Rectangle Triangle Units
A new quilt top - this one a custom order quilt top - not unlike the quilt previously seen here: Half Rectangle Triangle Quilt ~ many the same fabrics, and the same design, but bigger still.
Quilt tops like this don't get whipped up in a day or two. I have been working on this custom order for a few weeks, setting myself goals and completion dates - like cutting fabrics, then piecing the Half Rectangle Triangle Units, trimming, and finally piecing the quilt top. Breaking down the process into steps makes taking on a custom order more manageable and also allows me to continue working on the weekly projects that are featured here. It also helps to make me feel like I am organized, and not overwhelmed by tasks.
I estimate that there are 150 or so different fabrics and cutting each and everyone of those fabric pieces was the most time consuming of all the different stages of making. Pulling fabric and actually finding what I am looking for, cutting, pressing, re-folding, and returning to stash. Again and again. But it is my favorite part!
I am also working on a second quilt, another quilt just like this one - also a custom order but for a finished quilt, not a quilt top. I am not sure if I am patient enough for repeat custom work, although I am of course grateful for the opportunity.
Many of my favorite fabrics are used in this quilt top, some of which are now hard to find, and I have no hesitation in using them. Use it or lose it, right? No regrets, it is only fabric.
This quilt top has already been shipped and received by a happy new owner.
