The Modern Half Square Triangle Quilt and Quilt Pattern

Pattern now available - details below.

This quilt! My love for working with low volume fabrics continues to be strong. Other than the fact that I now have a significant stash of low volume fabrics on hand, which in itself is motivation to keep on stitching, I continue to enjoy working with this gentle color palette, the play of print and color, and as almost always is the case, traditional patchwork designs.

I have finished the quilt by quilting it with closely spaced straight vertical (edge to edge) lines only for a clean and modern look and a texture that makes you want to reach out and touch it each time you walk past! I have used a low loft cotton batting which also gives the quilt a light and airy feel.

For the back of the quilt I have used another long standing favorite text fabric ~ Newsprint from the Story collection by Carrie Bloomston, and for the binding I have used a soft pink stash basic  ~ Squared Elements in Rosewater by Art Gallery Fabrics.

I have LOVED every part of making this quilt; from the repetitive task that is block making and turning over my stash and scrap bins in search of just the right fabrics to the simple straight line quilting. This was not my first low volume quilt and I don't imagine that this is my last.
