I am so excited that I found a quilt a long I felt I could join in on! I have wanted to do one for a little bit now, but I needed to wait until one came along that I felt confident in the fact that I could actually do it! lol
Half square triangles (HSTs) are a basic component in a lot of really lovely quilting designs. I have now done any of them yet, though, and I feel I am ready to move on to that step now! Yay! Here is a little info about the quilt-a-long that I will be joining. I believe you can still sign up for it if you are interested in joining us.
I like the idea that this is an experiment in color usage, because as I have mentioned previously, a lot of what draws me to things is their color or their color combinations. So I will get to play with warm and cool colors and piece them in an aesthetically attractive way, which I love. :) The above little graphic, which is linked by the way, is what the quilt will look like.
So, the first step in the QAL was to pick out your fabrics, which I have done. Here they are. The warms and the cools :) They are generic fabrics ... nothing fancy. Just colors that I happen to like.
The next step for me will be cutting them into 5' squares to start with. I would already be working on this but I may possibly have started another small quilt,but more on that tomorrow! lol
