Festival of HSTs...

Today, although it's my day off and having a list as long as my arm of all the things I wanted to achieve, my decision-making skills appear to have blown away with the wind and rain outside!  I've not been very productive so far.

Anyway, one decision made, to link the 'you know what' with the Festival of Half Square Triangles being hosted by Megan over at Canoe Ridge Creations!



I'm afraid you will have to look away if you are fed up with the Brit Bee Constellation already.  There are, apparently, some folks who have not seen it yet, so please make them welcome!

Here it is, my favourite quilt...







Brit Bee Constellation

12 mega-blocks: made by the amazing Brit Bee, smaller HST stars made from the siggies and a few others added to fill the void.
Quilt design: based on the almighty Katy Jones' Constellation quilt from Fat Quarterly issue 5.
Prints: Momo 'Just Wing It', Kate Spain 'Central Park' and some random scraps.
Background solid: Klona Teal.
Binding: Joel Dewberry 'Herringbone' in Aqua.
Quilting: Straight line machine at 3/4" intervals using Gutermann cotton (7325), echo quilting one star from top left outwards.
Size: 72"x72"

The original post from January can be found here, and should I ever be fortunate enough to win anything because of this quilt, I will definitely share the glory, and maybe any goodies, with my Brit Bee ladies xxx

Please make sure to check out all the other awesome HST creations over at the linky party too.

Well I am hoping to get some photos of last night's finish to show you tomorrow; I am guessing they will end up being taken indoors though.  I hope your day hasn't been a wash out x

  2. I never tire of seeing this quilt. I think it's the colour. It would have beautiful with a neutral (white/grey/cream) background but that very brave teal choice is just sock-blowingly fabulous. Where do you keep it?
