First off, THANK YOU for your kind comments and excitement about my book! I appreciate each and every one! Your support means so much!
my new book. It's fun to see a more muted version of this pattern, although I am quite fond of the bright and happy version as well. If I counted right, there are only (gulp) 585 HSTs in this quilt. I can't wait to see it all quilted up!
Because I needed a little palette cleanser after finishing my quilt top, I finished up 10 more pincushions! Oddly enough, the ones I made this morning are the HST ones. Ha! You would think I'd be burnt out on triangles by now! These will be added to my basket of pincushions to give away. (My total should be at 70 now, and my goal is 100!)
Now it's your turn! Please link up your finishes for the week. Thank you for joining me for finish it up Friday!
585 HST's . . . That is amazing!!! Love the look of this in the awesome muted tones. So striking :)
Your quilt top looks great! I got the email from Amazon that my copy of your book is on the way :-) can't wait
Dethreading in a car sounds like a headache in quilt wrangling! Congratulations!
Yay, for your new book! That bowl of pincushions is so happy :D
That's a lot of HST love! Another wonderful scrap busting design and looks classic in the muted shades.
Your pincushions make me smile! Looking forward to seeing a bowl of 100. ;o)
I love it, Amanda! Question: what is your favorite method for making HSTs? By now you must have chosen one...
I love the HST quilt and those squircle pin cushions!
I love the pincushions with almost circles on them. So bright and cheerful!
Those triangles are wonderful!!!
Wow that quilt top is amazing! I love that you call the pincushions palette cleansers and I know just what you mean, they are also very pretty!
That quilt top is absolutely gorgeous! I love love love it! :)
Did you know that de-threading means pulling your thong underwear out of your crack according to the Urban Dictionary. Ha!
But I knew what you meant. I hate to de-thread quilts. I follow on Bloglovin.
Great quilt top finish!, so many triangles!
I spy gorgeous Flea Market Fancy on those pincushions, it is still on of my favourite fabric lines. x
Love your bruiser quilt top - I am a sucker for blues and HSTs so this is just wonderful - traditional and modern at the same time. Good luck with the book launch, your new baby about to be born!
I can totally relate to the reference to 'palette cleansing'. I use reproduction fabrics and then I want to do something bright and cheery. What I don't know is what is meant by 'de-threading'.
Wow wow wow. Cannot wait to see this one quilted up. And congrats on the book publishing!
That turned out beautifully.
Pre-ordered you r new book from Chapters. They will mail it out once it's in stock. I'm excited, and your quilt is gorgeous.
Just placed my order for your new book! Looks fantastic!
My book arrived yesterday! What a wonderful book! As I paged through it, first a fast flip through and then a nice slow review I found myself thinking, I want to make THIS one...NO, I want to make THIS ONE! over and over and over again. Thank you! I'm really looking forward to having many happy hours using my beloved scraps and creating beautiful quilts.
I so love that pattern and this version. The blue with neutrals is amazing.
I can't imagine dethreading in a car. I hate that part. Can't wait to see your new book. Sounds like it's full of wonderfulness.
Amanda! I just got my book in the mail last night! It's wonderful! You are one talented lady. Thanks.
