Summer Solstice {Half square triangles}

The most recent "assignment" for the Summer Solstice QAL with Melissa at Happy Quilting is to put all of our half-square triangles together. I am making a four block version of the quilt in the baby size, so I needed to make 96 HSTs! I worked on them a little at a time and finally finished them up Friday night while watching baseball.

My version of the quilt will be similar to Melissa's original diagrams with three colors + background, so I only needed two different colors of HSTs.

For fun, I decided to lay out all of the pieces that I had made thus far and see how my blocks are going to look!

I LOVE how this is looking so far! The sections that are "blank" are the sections that we haven't made yet which will be the drunkard's path blocks. I haven't done any drunkard's path blocks before (but I have done a decent amount of curved piecing!) so this is a fun new adventure for me -- especially with their finished size being 3.5 inches!

Sharing at Happy Quilting -- check out everyone's progress!


  1. Love the colors you are using in this project. They are going to make some beautiful blocks.

  2. They look fantastic!!! And great job on getting them all finished up ;) I love, love, love seeing your blocks starting to be laid out, so fun!!!!

  3. Whoa - those are tiny drunkards path blocks, and I hope they go together well.

  4. The colors are spot on! That flowery fabric is one of my favorites. I hardly have any left!
