576 Half Square Triangles Later

I finished this quilt in August.  Unfortunately, it is too large for me to get a picture of the entire quilt.  This was made from a Moda Heritage Collection for a Cause Kit that I purchased in 2008 at the Houston International Quilt Festival, and I have been working on it off and on ever since then.  It required constructing 576 half square triangles, quite a challenge for me.  I chose to to paper piece them, which gives me much more consistent results than the other methods I have tried.

I used a simple meander for the quilting.

My daughter expressed an interest in it and it went home with her recently.  It’s one more UFO off my guilt list.  I will hold on to the instructions.  I really like the pattern, but think I would use modern prints or possibly batiks next time around.

that is really pretty. I have a couple charm packs of that fabric line-they are very nice.
