The Modern Half Square Triangle Quilt and Quilt Pattern from Red Pepper Quilts

Modern Half Square Triangle Quilt. Pattern available | Red Pepper Quilts 2016
Half Square Triangle Variation Quilt
Pattern now available - details below.

This quilt! My love for working with low volume fabrics continues to be strong. Other than the fact that I now have a significant stash of low volume fabrics on hand, which in itself is motivation to keep on stitching, I continue to enjoy working with this gentle color palette, the play of print and color, and as almost always is the case, traditional patchwork designs.

I have finished the quilt by quilting it with closely spaced straight vertical (edge to edge) lines only for a clean and modern look ...

Design Wall Monday: Rainbow Chevron from Patchwork Sampler Blog

A stack of rainbow fat quarters in my fabric cupboard caught my eye a week or so ago and I started wondering what I could make with them. Then I remembered a quilt I drew in EQ7 that called for six colors and knew I was in business.  This pattern uses only six fat quarters plus some black and white.

Rainbow Chevron blocks
I still have to piece the blocks for the orange and red rows.  Once I finish the top, I’ll write a tutorial and give a couple of tips on simplifying the process.

2016 Week 17 Stash Report and Recap from Patchwork Sampler Blog

Yesterday I put the final stitches in the binding on this quilt.

Parson Gray

It was one of my UFOs for April and was made completely from stash. The pattern is a variation of the pattern Lemon Pepper by Madison Cottage Design and is made primarily with Parson Gray scraps left over from previous projects.  I quilted it in a random straight line grid.

The other April UFO project was a Thimbleberries table runner.  I’ve almost finished the machine applique and then it will be complete.  The remaining March project just needs to have the binding hand stitched so it will ...

A Half Square Triangle Variation Quilt from Red Pepper Quilts

Work in Progress.

I have had a busy week with sewing for a friend for quilt market - which I love to do! - and so my project for this week needed to be something simple with lots of fabric play, and if at all possible a scrap buster quilt. I am still focused on working my way through my overflowing scrap bins! I therefore decided to make another Tiffany Quilt. My original Tiffany Quilt features a mix of low volume, solids, printed fabrics, a gentle color palette and simple block sewing. Once I got started though I almost immediately found myself ...

On the Frame: Parson Gray Scrap Quilt from Patchwork Sampler Blog

This quilt is the only one that’s been on the frame this week and it is really boring quilting—just straight lines.  It’s a masculine quilt so feathers and curls wouldn’t look right.

Early in April I decided to pick two UFO’s and try to complete them.  This top just needed the borders attached, then quilting and binding.  I started it last year after making a commission quilt from mostly Parson Gray fabric.  There was leftover fabric from that quilt and not much in my stash plays nicely with it so I cut it all up ...

Design wall 4/18/16 string quilt from Always Quilts

I’ve been having fun making string quilts over the last several months and here is the one that’s on my wall today. All I have left to do is to get the top and bottom black outside borders sewn on and the top will be complete.

I decided to put a string border on this one. What do you think?

Anyway, that’s it for my wall, to see what others are doing check out

Fusing only today from Stitchin' Therapy

   I was inspired to do a repeat of sorts.  So today was  just cutting and fusing time.    I had been piecing bricks to make a long banner or table runner.  I had planned a flying geese band for the border.  But I tossed that idea to the wind and decided to just add fused plumes.

   That's a quarter on the purple plume for size reference.  I traced off a few from leftover plumes from the large quilt.  I quickly gave that up and just winged it by cutting free hand.....faster and more quirky since sizes vary greatly.

  It ...

Wear PINK! from Crazy Quilter on a Bike!

That delusional doability is rearing its ugly head again.  Let's see - today is Wednesday.  I leave on Monday afternoon for Paducah - that travel day is going to be a whole other story - wait for that!  Between now and then, I have two speaking engagements at guilds - one in Lindsay, one in Orangeville. One guild meeting in Waterloo. THREE classes to prep and teach. Two aditional classes to prep and hand off to someone else because I won't be around. Oh, let's not forget that quilt that I want to take to Paducah with me.  That's in ...

From a quilt show..... from Stitchin' Therapy

  I have been down since Wednesday with a pinched nerve flare up again.  Very little accomplished in the sewing room.  Yesterday was a little better and I pushed to go to a local quilt show.  I managed about an hour for seeing the quilts and visiting one booth of used books.  Luckily Sir Old Man was there to take a few photos and get me back home.

 This was an amazing quilt.....of course blue and white is always a favorite.  Made by Janet Ginn and hand quilted by a friend.  She calls it A Gift of Friendship.   I would ...

Assembled: The Hundred Patch from Wedding Dress Blue

About 11pm last night, April 7, I put the last stitches in THE Hundred Patch top.


The small squares started at 1-1/2″.   The narrow sashing likewise started at 1-1/2″ and the wider sashing between the blocks at 2-1/2″.

In case you are counting, and if I counted correctly, there are 5749 pieces in the completed top.  Just over 8-1/2 yards of rescued fabric scraps in those tiny squares.  Looking at it, I am surprised at how red/orange/yellow it is.  I don’t mind, but I would have guessed it would “read” cool as those ...

Wild and Wonderful week from Humble Quilts

It's been a bit of a whirlwind week here! We are two men down in our business (one quit, and one was injured and had surgery on his hand on Wednesday) So I've been trying to get a little sewing done between night and morning! I'm completely exhausted when I get home so I've not much to show. 

 I got this together last weekend. Next Monday Cheri will share the applique and border treatment ideas. Many of you are sewing along and will no doubt recognize I messed up a couple of blocks.

A finished quilt and a picture post. Enjoy!

A picture post of my finished Confetti Drunkard's Path Quilt. I have lots of photos to share with you today, I hope you don't mind? What I like most about this quilt (other than that it was a great opportunity to work on my curved piecing as well is an awesome scrap buster project) is the use of solid fabric contrasted with printed fabric to enhance the design of the Drunkard's Path block - a traditional patchwork block that on it's ...

Patriotic Picnic from Podunk Pretties

Just popping in to share my quilt top "Patriotic Picnic".    

I designed this quilt so I could use up the 90 or so nine patch UFO blocks .  It's a large quilt, finishing at 90 inch square.

The low volume background was a real challenge since my go-to background is usually plain ole Kona White.  It takes a lot more planning and paying attention to detail when working with the many different background prints, but well worth the effort, don't you think?

Well I didn't use up all those nine patches.  48 more on the wall.  Another design ...

Confetti Drunkard's Path Scrap Quilt ~ Part 1 from Red Pepper Quilts

Work in Progress. As promised, this week's quilt is a scrap buster quilt. I don't manage my fabric scraps well. My scraps are all odd sized pieces, a mix of prints and solid fabrics, in every color of the rainbow and more, all squished into two over-sized plastic tubs. It's not a pretty sight ... until you tip them over and see the treasures that are in there. Almost all of the

Friday! Friday! And a Book Winner! from Humble Quilts

Helloooooo and happy Friday!

I picked this up at the quilters on Wednesday. I'm hoping to get the binding on it this weekend. I do believe I will put this one up for sale at Sisters this summer. I was showcasing the reproduction fabrics by P&B Textiles. I like it a lot and am glad I chose the fan quilting.

Here's a few more blocks from Cheri's quiltalong. I hope to get them attached to the other half this weekend too. 

Without further ado. Thank you all who took the time to leave a comment about ...

Let's Book it....March from Stitchin' Therapy

  This Let's Book It project began in December took me forever to find the original post.    After I got about this far, I stopped.  It hung on the design wall taking up space.  I hated it.  Eventually, I moved on to other projects that suited me.  These blocks were tossed into the scrap bin.

  A couple of months ago, I ran across them again.  In my desire to clean up and clear out, I hacked them down---getting rid of that awful border.  I decided to sew them together in one long row and maybe do a runner ...

Design wall 3/28/16 strings again from Always Quilts

I have all the string blocks made that I need for my next string quilt up on the wall today.  I have a few of the small blocks sewn into bigger blocks but I took the picture prior to getting them made.

I didn’t get much  done with it over the weekend and with other obligations this week, I’m not sure how much time I’ll have to sew on it this week. We’ll see.

Scrap Quilt Secrets Blog Hop from Humble Quilts

Spring is the perfect time for a new quilt book release and I couldn't be more happy to be helping Diane spread the news about her new book, Scrap Quilt Secrets.(Of course, they will not be secrets any longer!)I cannot remember when I discovered Diane's blog, Butterfly Threads Quilting, but if I remember correctly my first comment said, "Why haven't I found you sooner?" She is super talented and loves to share with her blog readers. So naturally, a book would seem like the next step. Continue reading and you can have many opportunities to ...

Vinnie Loves Maude from Quilting Hottie Haven - the blog of EvaPaige Quilt Designs

TWICE IN A WEEK, HOTTIES! That's how often I've released a new pattern over the last few days. Can you deal with it? I, queen of taking forever and a day to get a pattern to completion, CANNOT! 

Vinnie Loves Maude
If we are being honest, this latest is actually not QUITE ready for the printer as of this very moment, as I'm waiting on the all important cover photo editing (as you can see, it's a little washed out looking over there, and that will never do in print), but it's good enough for ...
