It's time again for one of the best quilt shows ever, so much inspiration and so many beautiful quilts. A huge "thank you" goes out to Amy for all of her hard work putting this together.
It's always difficult to pick a quilt for this show, but thinking about the story behind a quilt helped me pick this one.
When I first started on this journey I saw a quilt made of triangles, I had no idea what I was doing and certainly didn't know anything about HST's.
I cut hundreds of tiny triangles and attempted to sew them together, they were about 1 inch finished size, frustrating and they looked really bad. But, thank goodness for the blogging world, I found a tutorial on HST's and was amazed how easy they are.
After making the requisite pinwheel, this quilt was born. I was and am so proud of it, I loved the dimension and the colors that came from just grabbing scraps, this was my first scrappy quilt too.
This was one of the first quilts to make me feel like a "real" quilter and it felt pretty good.
