Having some Garden Party half square triangles leftover from my Single Girl quilt, I had to become creative.
I was originally going to use it for the border, but didn't like the look. There were too many for a pillow, but not enough for a quilt. I was inspired by a modern baby quilt at the little red hen and decided to showcase them on a solid.
I wanted to experiment with quilting something other than straight lines and went for some texture like her quilt did.
It took lots of thread! Mettler 642 is a perfect match for the Kona Coal. I just wiggled this quilt under my walking foot. It was fun and relaxing to just let the pattern happen. I stitched in the ditch around the 3 inch half square triangles.
It measures 44 inches by 64 inches and it sits next to the Single Girl quilt on my couch. I might take a break from the Kona coal, but it's great for kids with gray socks on the living room couch. I didn't think the seam from the backing would show too much, but I guess that is what happens with quilting on solids that close together! Any name suggestions for this quilt??
