Half-Square Triangle Quilt

When I expressed to my seamstress-aunt a desire to start up sewing again, she recommended Shea Henderson’s School of Sewing. After browsing reviews online & checking out the awesome book trailer I decided to buy the book. Hotdog! It is a hit. School of Sewing has fantastic projects that’re immediately useful. The Half-Square Triangle quilt is the final project, and I couldn’t be more excited to be hand-sewing on the binding.

Right now I’m sewing with mostly solids (Although, there’s a half yard of Cotton + Steel from Sarah Watts’ collection Honeymoon waiting to be an apron pocket!), and went with warm & bold here complimented by grey.

Piecing it all together

Years ago I made three quilts in a summer with whim guiding my hand, and I doubt a ruler ever entered the room. Over the next ten years I dabbled with a few shirts, dresses, and other random items. School of Sewing helped me feel more confident with myself and a sewing machine.

For the quilt backing I went blue. It feels fresh & light and helps anchor the quilt top’s bright movement.
