I don't need to have it completed until May, but today I have been planning my "15 Shades of Gray" quilt for the guild's challenge.
Do you think these triangle units are HSTs, QSTs, or something else? I want to do something like this, but just half of the shape - like big flying geese - between two wide side borders only.
On the banks of the Mississippi River in north central Minnesota (Brainerd lakes area)
They look like HST to me Nancy.
In the beautiful Pacific Northwest!
I agree - they look like HSTs. Since I am a big PP'er, I would PP them in rows - so much easier to match up.
Obtw - I love the quilt and the idea of all grays. So simple but stunning.
A quilt will warm the heart.
They are HSTs set on point. That is a really pretty quilt.
I agree too. HST and your blocks are on pointe. It does look beautiful. Did you make this one?

I need some opinions on my latest project, please. I am making this quilt for my new nextdoor neighbor, a young girl who just bought her first house. Somewhere on the quilt I want it to say, "Welcome to the Neighborhood." I don't know if I want it to just have that somewhere in the lower right of the quilt on one of the houses, have it across the middle in the wide black sashing, or have it spread out over the three wide black sashings. I would put (Welcome) in the top one, (to the) in the middle, and (Neighborhood) in the bottom one. I'll probably do it in red thread if it's on the black sashing. If it's on one of the houses then I'll decide the color depending on which house it is. Please excuse the condition of the quilt top- I haven't run the sticky roller over it yet to remove all the threads!
Great quilt. I love the houses and the colors.
Carol, I LOVE your quilt. --and the thought behind it. I think I would tend to spread the welcome out on the 3 black sashes, as you suggested. I think your new neighbor will be floored with that beautiful quilt. Ginny
Carol, love your welcome quilt. I'm sure she will love it too.
Your quilt really is wonderful !! You told me what you were doing, but I never dreamed it was so involved. Your neighbor is going to love this ! : )
What about stitching her address on one of the home's and stitch Welcome to the neighborhood on the top black boarder.
Here are a blue jean quilt & wall hanging I finished this week. Sorry they posted sideways, but if you click on the picture it will post right side up. Now back to the other UFOs I am trying to finish this month.
Great jean quilt and I love the wall hanging.
Carol you quilt is so nice. I think anywhere you put the Welcome it will show up very pretty and wow I wish I were your neighbor. How nice.
Patricia Faye the blue jean quilt is so neat and that wall hanging is great. Really pretty.
Nancy that quilt is sooo pretty. It will look nice in grays too. Did you make this one? Thinking not if you are asking if they are HST's. Looks like a lot of work.
