WIP Wednesday

I've made some good progress on my HST quilt.  I really like how these blocks come together.  I finished 12 of my 16 blocks and am debating on my final layout.  Originally I planned to make this quilt 4x4 blocks so 72" square.  I could do it 3x5 blocks and add borders to the sides to make a twin quilt.  I don't really need a twin, and the large throw would be fun.  Who am I kidding, I don't really need a really large throw either.  I'm still debating.


I cut these hexagons the other day from my stack of Art Gallery fabrics I bought at Sample Spree at Quilt Market.  I've wanted to try machine piecing hexagons for quite a while and decided to give it a try after seeing Jessica's hexagon pillow.  I'm not sure that I'll start immediately, but they are all cut and ready to sew.

Finally, these came in the mail last week from Kim over at My Go-Go Life from her giveaway.  I love them, especially the bikes and the VW buses.  I'd really like to incorporate some of these into one of my next projects, but I'm stumped.  Any great suggestions?

  1. LOVE your hst quilt. That's one of my favorite blocks right now. I know what you mean, I have a hard time deciding on things when a quilt is "just because" rather than for a specific reason. And I struggle with Heather Ross Fabrics too. I've seen some really cute "i spy" stuff made from them.

  2. Oh, your HST quilt is looking lovely!!! I absolutely adore it! I'm not usually a border kind of girl, but I think that a border on this quilt might look really nice, to really set off the HSTs. Good luck choosing :)

  5. Love your HST quilt, it's gorgeous!
    I've seen lots of scrappy block quilts with HR fabrics -with the featured fabric in the center, then use scraps to border it - maybe log cabin style?

  9. Agree with Kris, the all-green HST block is a beauty! I'd just sit and stroke those yummy fabrics for a while before deciding what to do!

  30. I love the colors of your HST quilt! hexagons are easy to make. you will have the piecing done in less than an hour! That's how I made my header. See my pictural tutorial of piecing hexagons if you are interested. How about a modern log cabin with some other pinks for your new fabric!? I'm insanely jealous over. here;)
