I've had this quilt hanging on my design wall far too long! It seems like a long time. Back in I decided it was time to wrangle my hand dyed scraps. It started here: Scrap It Out.
I was playing around with Half Rectangles Triangles and came up this a block: HRT With A Twist. Because I was messing around...I ended up with two different sizes and didn't really have a plan for either. This is a fun block for me to make, I really couldn't help myself.
Before I knew it, there was a little stack of these!
I added a frame around the smaller blocks which paired with the larger blocks, gave me a stack to work with.
That worked! A seemingly complicated and busy block became a little quilt after all!
|HRT WITH A TWIST|
31 1/2" x 38 1/2"
The addition of the border increased the size and neutralized the design.
I machine quilted a geometric grid design. I'm loving the little grids in each center square!
For the back, I used Kona Honeydew. Honeydew has such a fresh clean look, I love it! There are still plenty of hand dyed scraps lingering in my bin. Won't there always be?! Most have been cleaned up and cut into squares for future use. You know, just in case a brilliant idea comes knocking at my door!
