Just for fun, an easy half square triangle quilt using some of my favorite fabrics, including quite a number of beautiful Liberty of London Tana Lawn floral prints, all paired up with a range of neutral solid fabrics. I really do like the contrast that the solid fabrics have brought to both the printed fabrics and the quilt.
I spent quite some time arranging and rearranging the half square triangle units, from a complete jumble to fully organized and structured. So many layout options, and it seems that you cannot go wrong with this traditional patchwork unit.
Solid fabrics used ~
Robert Kaufman Kona Cotton in: White, Snow, Natural, Bone,
Ivory, Oyster, Silver.
For the back of the quilt I have used a single text fabric ~ A is for Alphabet by My KT for Windham Fabrics. I have had this fabric in my "backing fabric" stash for some time, but being directional (it's nice to have the text upright on the back of the quilt) and having only a few yards on hand has meant it has been patiently waiting for the right project to come along ... and this was it!
And for the binding I have used a yellow/white stripe binding - Clown Stripe in Limeade by Michael Miller (This stripe is 1/4" wide).
