Half Square Triangle Quilt

In the past I’ve been terrible about finishing and sending off blankets. So bad that I actually have a quilt top I finished┬áin December 2012 and still haven’t sent it. No more! As I mentioned before, I have promised quilts to several people in the past. I’ve made a goal/promise to finish every quilt I’ve promised by July of this year! That’s 5 months away!

I’ve made great headway on my list of promised/started quilts! It sure helps that I have another goal of doing something crafty every day, so I usually head over to my list and get to work!

Here’s a quilt I made for a friend’s baby (as a lot of my projects are). She liked a pin on my Pinterest before I found out she was having a boy and made a mental note. She doesn’t even know that I’ve made it for him! I hope she likes it!

Keep in mind, this is one of the first quilts I made with half square triangles. I didn’t line them up perfectly, and you can tell, but the design is still pretty cool! I also quilted it with straight lines before I had a walking foot for my machine. The wonky lines just add character, right?

Here it is!


PS- Thanks to my sister for holding up the blankets in wet snow while I took the pictures!

Do you think she’ll like it? Let me know what you think!
