“Five Half-Square-Triangle Hills” Completed

My entry for the Quilters’ Blog Festival is this recently completed bed size quilt featuring half-square-triangles collected in a quilt group exchange.


The completed quilt:


The five “half-square-triangle hills” running along the center of the quilt:


Machine quilting in the white areas at the ends of the quilt:



A corner showing the border quilting and binding:


The quilting on the chevron areas and the continuous curve quilting on the half-square-triangles in the interior areas:

Some views of the quilting from the back side of the quilt:


I used Glide thread in colors 20001 Cream and 20140 Leather for the long arm quilting using my Gammill Vision 26-10 machine. The batting was Hobbs 80-20. The quilt measures 88 inches by 100 inches. The half square triangles were collected in a half-square-triangle exchange with my quilt group, Lovells Loose Threads, during 2013.

    The quilting is awesome… And so is the layout 🙂 The colors are soft, but the quilt overall is very dynamic.
