Today's Post: Piecing the Top
Half Square Triangle Quilts flickr group for lots of great ideas!
I'm going to show you a few different options for your quilts! :)
This layout creates a giant diamond pattern! If you need help laying yours out, feel free to refer back to the diagrams in the first post, here! Another interesting variation of this is to do it off-center!
This is a fun one, creating a squares on point pattern!
Another popular HSTs pattern, zig-zags!
This pattern is a variation of the traditional value pattern, with 5 smaller diamonds!
Whichever layout you choose, they are all pieced the same way, in rows! Be sure to play around a bit with your layout, making sure you have an even distribution of colors and fabrics! For my quilt, I went with this little diamonds pattern! I couldn't help myself after seeing littlebluebirdie's layout on flickr! :)
And there we have it! Your top is done, woo hoo! Go ahead and cut out (or piece) your backing in preparation for next week's post! We'll be talking quilting!
