HSTeria - last link-up

Here we are, the last link-up with Vicki at Field Trips in Fiber who so kindly organised this quilt along.
We have seen some great examples of using half square triangles in quilts and I've enjoyed this quilt along enormously even if I have concentrated on just the one quilt!  Still have the diagonal seams to sew but family circumstances mean that I won't get around to this until later in the week so I decided to post now even though "Red Sea Sunset" is not totally finished,  the wave along the bottom edge needs fixing - I was so careful with bias edges but the bottom ones got away from me.

Red Sea Sunset

I must find my tripod, trying to get the photographs without it means I'm ending up with wonky looking quilts and then cropping evenly to lose the background becomes difficult to say the least, the yet to be sewn diagonal seams don't help!

As a result of all the different fabrics used I have a large bag of left over triangles, these are being stitched to black half square triangles and being placed in a random fashion - photo next post all being well.

The first bunches of narcissus appeared the shops last week and I love the scent of these early flowers, two bunches came home with me.

Off to read the blog posts for today - have a good week.


  1. Oh, what a beautiful sunset! Your quilt is lovely; thanks for posting the progress for us to see.
    Enjoy the narcissus. It's so hot here now, nothing but zinnias.

  2. Fabulous HSTs - beautiful!!!!!!!!!!

  3. The colors are fabulous. Great quilt!

  4. If this quilt does not meet your standards, I will take if off your hands out of the goodness of my heart. It really is quite wonderful. I love how well you've blended the Kaffe fabrics in with the batiks.

  5. Your Red Key Sunset is absolutely gorgeous!!!! Such a lot of sewing - but so worth it :)

  6. You've really achieved mastery with the colours on this quilt. It's so, so beautiful.

  7. It's beautiful. Thanks for commenting on my blog.
