I ended up taking inspiration from a photograph of a quilt on Instagram by scrapstudio which I believe is based on a Moda quilt pattern. It is a very straight-forward pattern of HSTs and solid blocks so I just drew one up. Then I decided to make it very rainbow and scrappy and the insanity began.
Here is the layout I decided on in my notebook:
|It took a long time but allowed me to audition different fabrics to get the look I wanted. Hopefully it looks good all put together too!
|I made the blocks 8x8" so I could trim them down to the 7x7" size I actually needed.
|Trimming all those HSTs probably would have gone faster and had me less worried about a chopped tail if someone hadn't been so helpful.
|Taking pictures at night=bad reflections
|This gives you an idea of how the ruler fit over the HST (which is a very large HST- I think it would be even easier with a smaller block).
|Success for less effort than usual!
