Here’s the last finish of August, made of HST (half square triangle) blocks left over from another project.
And here it is held out the window for me to photograph! I thought it would be fun to have my husband stand on the landing half way up the stairs and hold the quilt out the window. And it was fun!
Design by: me
Finished size: 50″ x 75″
Quilted by: Julia Madison
And just in case you asked, the quilt isn’t upside down in either picture. It’s ambidirectional–is that even a word?
So your new home also provides you with a fun way to display newly created quilts! Lucky hubby!
Oh, yes, lots of opportunities for Steve to hold up quilts. Ha!
It’s a glorious quilt! Love the way you’ve worked with colors, going from dark to bright in a seemingly random way. It’s a nice size for a lap throw, so I hope someone will enjoy using it and admiring it too. Great photo out the window. You make me wish we lived in a two-story! Though honestly, I don’t miss stairs one little bit. Have a lovely Labor Day weekend.
That’s a lot of surplus HSTs! How did you happen to make so many extra?
Hahaha. I was taking an art quilt class that used HSTs. This quilt is nothing like the projects for the class; I like mine much better. It all worked out 😁
I love the quilt! And the photo of it hanging out the window is so clever!
Thanks, Kathleen! Hope you are enjoying Montana–I did see one nice picture on Facebook.
First that is a brilliant way to photograph a quilt using the window! Second – that is a brilliant quilt! Wow – love the blue and orange so much and great design (HST joy!) 🙂
Thanks. I’m happy to say I like it, too.
Another gorgeous work. And it is a very striking photograph. Glad you two had fun taking it!
Thank you 😊
