This time it was the ladies from the A Twist on Tradition bee. I provided a selection of black and white and red and white fabric as well as some Kona Snow and asked them to make me two 12 1/2 inch blocks based on using the half square triangle only. One block black and white. One block red and white.
What half square triangle blocks they came up with was entirely up to them.
And this is the result:
I love, love, love it.
The blocks were a breeze to sew together (they all really were 12 1/2 inches - thank you ladies!) and then with the spare fabric that they sent back I cut it up to make a completely random half square triangle border.
On the back I appliqued the block I made up as the example to the backing fabric.
|Yes Kristie, it's that fabric again ;-)|
Quilting was a double cross - hatch over the quilt.
And the binding couldn't have been more apt if I'd tried.
|Excuse loose threads, haven't snipped them off yet.|

It's my new 'snuggle on the sofa' quilt. Thank you.
