Festival of Half Square Triangles
It’s my stop on the festival tour! If you haven’t stopped by Megan’s yet, be sure to get all the details, including prizes, here. There’s a line up of great bloggers sharing loads of inspiration over the next two weeks, follow along to jump start your next project!
I shared my new pillow, a little over a week ago, and decided to make it the focal point of my post today. I LOVE having this piece on our couch, and the kids have been fighting over who gets to use it. Maybe I’ll have to make another!
To make this pillow cover, I used one charm pack, and about a half yard of Kona Natural.
It’s a great way to experiment with a small amount of fabric, and put your HST skills to the test! The only spot I made plans for was around the perimeter of the pillow, with the colorful half facing out. Then I laid out the squares I wanted to include, and added all the HST’s. I had fun working randomly instead of my usual detailed plans. Deviating from the norm is so freeing,, and will push your creativity too!
I used 20 – 5″ charms to make 160 HST units, and I made a PDF to share my method with you! Typically I would not be excited about making 160 HST units, but this makes it fairly painless. In the PDF I also included multiple sizes, so you can make it work for many of your future projects. Print and enjoy!
