Time Travel Tuesday

Since I'm working on a challenge quilt and cannot share photos of its progress, I decided to browse through some older photos for something else to share.  Today, we're traveling back to August of 2007.

This baby quilt was made from half-square triangles (also know as HSTs) for friends of ours who have had many babies.  I think this quilt was given to their fourth baby, or maybe it was their third.  I thought it would be nice for this child to have something especially for him.

I was in an online block swap in which every participant made a set of HST's with white-on-white fabrics on one side and a print on the other side.  These blocks were all mailed to the hostess and sorted so we would all have a nice variety of fabrics.  I used all the blue HST's and a few other colors to add interest and fill in.  Then the outer borders were made to continue those angles.

It was quilted on my home sewing machine with stars and loops.  A simple quilt that was meant to be used and loved and dragged around the house, not put up somewhere safe in a closet. 

Enjoy your day!

  1. Adorable quilt! Love the stars you quilted! Fits the quilt perfectly!

  2. I love how HST's can be laid out in so many ways. I admire your quilting a lot... the loops & stars look like they are fun to do!
