I have been inspired by a quilt that Sharon worked on. You can see it here. http://grassrootsquilting.blogspot.com/ There is a baby shower that I have been invited to at the end of this month and I thought I would take some of my Aunt Gracie fabrics and some white and work up a bunch of half square triangles and see where it got me. The first batch made is here.
I have to make up another 80 or so blocks and I will have a baby quilt top. There will be 3 "open" squares by 4 "open squares. It will give me 36 x 48. Then there will be borders if I so choose.
I am using the Quilt in a Day half sqare triangle ruler and I just love using it as I have always hated making hst's, but with this ruler, they are a snap. You get 8 at a time. Love it!
So, I hope to have a finished quilt in no time at all. Of course, since I can't machine quilt like Sharon does, mine won't be as beautiful as hers. ;)
