This value quilt will go home with niece Ella to Northern Ireland after we all meet up for vacation in California. It has been hanging for ages as a class sample and not till I had it on the design wall at home did I discover I had a whole row off by one. Whoops. It has so many medium valued squares it was hard to tell.
I never thought I would say this, but after working on this, new shop samples and nephew Ethan’s quilt I’m a little burnt out on half square triangles. But with all the output of energy for the book my creative energy is low and I’m on a cross it off the list marathon for what is around here unfinished.
I quilted in a diagonal random cross hatch, seen better from the back.
I’m hoping the backing will be the ‘older girl’ fabric. I’m so thrilled I scored it. The back is the same simple design as Ella’s brother’s quilt.
I’m smitten with the Alexander Henry Heath in quilting weight. I used it for the binding and to connect the back.
I’ll have to get a photo of both quilts together when I am in sunny California, not mossy Washington.
I have two small value quilt shop samples to do and a Value Class to teach tonight and then I think I’m done with Half Square Triangles for awhile.
Here’s a rerun of Ethan’s Quilt.
and the back.
