I don't often seem to get the change to piece any quilts - most of the quilts I make tend to focus on the machine quilting and they are usually wholecloth quilts.  This week, I decided that a quilt needed to be made for an upcoming birthday present and so, I have been enjoying piecing.

As the quilt is for an 18th Birthday, I decided it needed to have a modern look.  The quilt only has two solid colours - a white and green.  I thought I would quickly whip up this  quilt, howevever, there is no way of quickly piecing and trimming back 540, 2 inch half square triangles.
Slowly, the half-square triangles have come together
Having finished the half-square triangles, now the quilt is starting to come together more quickly.
Back to sewing - the birthday is soon!


  1. This is going to be incredible! Very crisp, clean and modern!
