Using My Scraps


One quilt done and one quilt top completed.   The first is one I have shown you progress pics on.   I got it quilted and bound late last week.   Very easy to do using 1 1/2" strips and some larger scraps.   To make it a little bit three dimensional, I used jumbo ric rac in the centre of the flower.  



This next one also uses 1 1/2' strips and HST's.   I never knew how much fun HST's were.  



Both of these quilts will go to the hospital to be given to kids with cancer.   I hope they like them.

Your flowered quilt is so cute, what a great look, nice add bold. This would be something for my daughter to try throught the winter.

I love both of these! Great job, and I bet they will be a hit at the hospital, and cheer up the patients that receive them. :)

They'll love them. And HSTs are the best.

That flower quilt is lovely. I like the idea of ric rak in the middle of the flower to make it stand out. A child is going to be made very happy when they receive that one.

OK, I give up. What is an HST?

Jackie said...

Sorry, an HST is a half square triangle.

I love the strong geometric vibe of the second one. I'm sure any child would be thrilled to have these.

HSTs are easy?? lol Different strokes for different folks! ;)

After making a queen sized HST two years ago, I never want to see another HST again!

Yours are great, btw. :)
