half rectangle triangles

I think I found my new favorite patchwork shape - half rectangle triangles. They are a little bit more finicky to work with than their well known cousins haft square triangles, but I think all the extra effort is totally worth it.


I followed this wonderful tutorial for making my blocks. I made them bigger though - I started with two 7" x 10" rectangles of fabric and ended up with two 6" x 9" blocks after trimming.

I love how these blocks look, especially in this color combo (which is probably my all time absolute favorite ever). Now just to decide what the next step will be. I'm thinking of adding a wide border in Kona Snow. And then I'd like to do some fun quilting. Let's just hope I won't run out of steam :).

Hope you all had a lovely and creative weekend. Svetlana

  10. I tried HRTs once and didn't like them, but mine were much more acute than yours. Maybe I just needed to make them closer to 45 degrees. I like the diamond design that is appearing and I love your color choices. That's what I feel like the weather looks like lately! :)
