Finish It Up Friday ~ HSTs Quilt

I cut the pieces for this quilt before I had my  Accuquilt die cutter, I think it was back in 2012. I cut them at the same time that I cut out Daughter #1’s wedding quilt. The top was pieced last winter in Arizona and I have finally finished it. I took these pictures while visiting Sweet MIL.

All the prints are from various Denise Schmidt lines. The white is from Ikea.

The pantograph I used for the quilting is called Petal Flambé and it is available from Urban Elementz.

This fun backing fabric is actually a vintage sheet that my sister gave me. It was perfect for this top!

And I’m happy to say that I found the perfect binding fabric in my stash.

Have a wonderful day!

    What a beautifully bright and cheerful quilt! I’ve got a pretty big stash of HSTs – waiting for just the “right” project to use them in – and this might be it! Thanks for the inspiration!

    Beautiful quilt Katy and a nice photo on the rocking chair too! I recognize some of the fabrics that I still have. I better use them before they become collector’s items. Her fabrics are timeless.

    Katy, this is great!
    I try to use HSTs whenever I can…they are so versatile! I just pieced a bunch of them (they are bonus triangles, even better!!) … Some of them will be used on the back of a quilt to add a bit of a surprise… The rest will make their way in other projects….
    I love the way you set the HSTs in your quilt…I know you have probably gotten tired of hearing me say how I am constantly amazed at the awesome quilts that can be made from such simple shapes….

    Gorgeous fabrics, pattern and quilting. Great layout, just a delight.

  17. Your quilt is lovely. I was thinking about you yesterday as I was trimming HSTs and realizing you can trim in half the time with your die cutter. Nonetheless, I had to smile when I saw the title of your post. Really pretty setting for your pictures. I need to take some of my quilts on a photo date, since I really need to improve my photos!

    I am a HST girl. I love this quilt in all it’s scrappiness look.

    Hi Katy,
    Ooh, beautiful quilt. I love how it looks like each section is radiating outward. That backing!! Perfect, and the match of the binding from your stash! It couldn’t have worked out better. ~smile~ Roseanne
