I just finished up those two Half-Square Triangle blocks yesterday.
Most fabrics are by French General for Moda. Some are Parson Gray’s Curious Nature collection which I just love. I couldn’t identify the others. I got them from a scrap bag at a local shop. The beige is Kona cotton in Natural.
My step-parents are finishing up their living room renovations. And I’m doing some pillows for their two red leather chairs using those blocks for the front panel.
The design was inspired by this mini-quilt by Jolene at Blue Elephant Stitches. I just love all the negative space surrounding the HST. In mine, there is not as much negative space as I initially planned. I’m a bit limited by the chairs size. We figured out that a pillow 10″ x 10″ would be the best size. I didn’t find any pillow forms in those sizes, so I’ll have to make them my-self.
I’m still unsure how I’ll finish up the pillows. I’m planning to quilt both the front and top panel. But, should I bind them or put some piping? Should I make a zipper or envelope closure? Here are the two fabrics I’m planning to use for the back panel (grey) and the binding/piping (red). Both are also from La Petite École by French General.
