Wow, August is turning into a month of finishes for me, which is great. I love seeing all these quilts come together, yay.
This week I managed to get all the binding and labelling finished for my Half Square Triangle Block of the Month (HST BOM) quilt from In Color Order’s BOM. She did the BOM in 2012, but I was not able to start my quilt until January of this year. I was trying to be good and keep it as a BOM, but in June I got excited and started going ahead. I am happy I did as I love how it all turned out and that I will have this bright happy quilt for the fall and winter.
I did the quilt using Simply Color fabric line from V and Co. I love this fabric and all the happy colors in it.
The backing is rainbow chevrons from Riley Blake in large. This took a little planning as I needed to piece it and I didn’t want the seam to be noticeable. I managed to get it pretty close but not perfect – no one has noticed so far, lol.
For the quilting i wanted to stick with something with angels to go with all the triangles on the front. I decided to quilt it with straight lines in a chevron pattern. To make things easy, I simply followed the chevrons on the back (and quilted it upside down which was interesting to make sure I didn’t hit any pins!).
