I hope you all had a wonderful Easter weekend.
I worked all weekend.
We celebrated our Easter on Monday.
My youngest brother is getting married this summer, and I've been thinking of different patterns to make.
I had one idea, but didn't think i could make it happen in the time I had left.
So, I took my coloring pencils and graph paper out and started coloring.
I was inspired by Mary's Carpenter Star quilt pattern found here.
She used the GO! 6.5 inch half square triangle die and the 6.5 inch square die to make it.
I have the 6.5 inch HST die, but this quilt pattern was for a lap quilt and I wanted a queen.
Here is the drawing I came up with.
I just kept adding hst's around my center Carpenter Star.
I really like the look of it.
This is the fabric I had purchased for the quilt.
It's a Henry Glass collection, and a few kona solids.
I cut all my fabric.
I needed 100 red , 100 black, 148 white triangles.
I cut them using my GO! cutter and the 6.5 inch HST die.
Here they are all cut up.
It went really fast to cut them up.
I did start piecing the center.
Here is what I have done up to now.
I wish my design wall was bigger.
As I get further along, I will share my progress with you.
