Before I get to the business at hand, just a quick pause to show off my lovely daughter and one of my two gorgeous dogs! Eve is certainly going to miss her fur sisters when she goes off to university next fall!
And now back to our regularly scheduled programming. As promised in my last post, this morning I set out my vinyl tablecloth on the living room floor and tried out four layouts of the HSTs made with Maison de Garance. None of them use all of the 160 HSTs that I have - I just wanted to get an idea of the look. Here they are:
(2) Don't know what this layout is called officially, but I have been thinking of it as Lattice Diamonds (ignore those random blocks along the left side).
(3) Single diamonds
(4) Single triangles
So what do you think is the nicest? I'm sure there are other layouts that I didn't try; for example, the barn raising layout with concentric diamonds radiating out from the centre. I'm not terribly fond of that one, so I didn't bother with it. But if there are others that I should know about please do say!
P.S. Thanks, all of you, for that bunch of wonderfully encouraging comments on yesterday's post when I was feeling so blue about that quilt top. I've got a line on some long-armers, and I'm filled with renewed hope!
