Playing with HSTs on Sunday Afternoon

This picture is of some carpeting, and I was intrigued by the pattern, or should I say, lack of pattern in the design.

Sunday afternoon I played with the leftover half-square triangle parts that I didn't use in Celtic Solstice, and replicated part of the design.  I have yet to figure out if there is a "block" that can be made and then turned various ways to get the look of the carpeting.  You can see where I penciled in the squares.
Here is my start on the design.  It is as close to modern art that this civil war repro quilter will probably ever get.

If you want to see what other quilters are doing, here's a link to Design Wall Mondays at Patchwork Times (Here)


  1. I like it when they are laid out a bit more orderly. Love the colors.

  2. It's amazing where we quilters find inspiration, isn't it? Love the colors in your quilt.

  3. I'm lovin" those colors you are using! It's kind of fun to step out of what we really like (civil war repros), to make something that surprises even us!

  4. Wow! Great colors. I "think" I know where my sewing machine is. I consider that progress of a sort ;)


I am always searching for new ideas and your feedback helps me learn how to do things better. Thanks for stopping by!
