Quilting with half-square triangles is my favorite. I love that you can make so many different types of quilts with the same block. And the blocks come together so simple. And it’s a perfect type of block for solids, I think. In other words – perfect for a lazy quilter like me.
And today I’m sharing another half-square quilt – this one ended up as a herringbone pattern and I lurrrrrve it. I was inspired by this pair of twin herringbone quilts at Persia Lou. But I made it using my dimensions. I used graph paper to plot it out. I ended up with 6 inch blocks made into half-square triangles using this method. The final quilt is 7 blocks wide by 8 blocks long – a good sized baby quilt.
It’s just a quick layout swap from the chevron version, but this graphic version is so unique and fun. And, I think, more unique. (It also makes you dizzy if you stare at it too long, which I believe is the sign of a good quilt.)
I used Kona solids to piece the front and a dot for the binding and backing. I finished the quilt with straight quilting lines.
Poor Henry thinks the quilt is his. Look at this grin. It actually goes perfectly with his room so I don’t blame him. But since he has approximately a dozen quilts in his room, I think he’ll be okay without this one.
So Henry-man helped me pack it up and send it off to its new home – that of my lovely friend Lyndsay at That 70s House. Her sweet boy’s new room actually has an insanely awesome herringbone wall. I hope that this quilt fits there, too.
What do you think of the newest quilt?
