Quilt Top Finish = Bonus Project Decision

This week I have a lot going on in the sewing room, but not a lot I can show yet ;)  Good ol Market is fast approaching and that means secret sewing, but not secret for super long, so that is good!!!   I can share this sneak peek of a quilt top I finished up last week. It features Lollipop Garden Fabric by Lella Boutique for Moda.  Don't you just love those happy spring colors!!!  You know I especially love the purples :)    And on a side note, this is my first time trying the whole "quilt swirl" picture, and I have to say, they are a lot harder to swirl then they look.  Being honest, this picture was take number 5, tee hee hee :)


And now with the quilt top finished, I have an extra decision to make.  The quilt top used stitch and flip corners, so now I have a wonderful array of Bonus Half Square Triangles that I thought would make a cute little pillow to go with the quilt :) The only question is, what layout to do???    I played with a Giant Diamond, Straight Rows, Chevron, and Little Diamonds.    And of course, the possibilities go on and on :) 



Do you have a favorite HST layout???  Help a girl decide :)

I hope you all have a very Happy Quilting Weekend!!!

  4. I'm sorry, that's not really a diamond. I still like the 1st photo (top row, left side) even if it's an Hourglass/Qtr-Sqr Triangle block!

  8. Last half square triangle thing I did was a leader and ender and I ended up doing it like the bottom right - diamond set-up. Turned out very effective.

  10. Try this kind of layout with your lights and darks as another option: https://www.pinterest.com/pin/143200463139657934/
    I also have an entire HST board with fun ideas: https://www.pinterest.com/mpv61/quilting/hsts/

    I do love how much a person can do with HSTs!

  15. I really like the top left, but off-centered a little bit. It gives a more dynamic look!

  16. Little Diamonds is my favorite. Can't wait to see the whole quilt. Love the fabric and the "quilt swirl".

  17. Little Diamonds is really pleasing to my eye. But you're the maker and designer, I have faith in your decision. lol

  18. I like the last one, it reminds me of little sailboats.

  19. The bottom left layout makes your eyes linger longer because it is not often seen, so I vote for that one!
