Quilts of Valour

Last fall I was very lucky and won a fat quarter bundle from Sew Sister’s Blogathon Canada.  It was Northcott’s Stonehenge OH CANADA line.


I knew immediately that I would use the fabric to make a quilt for Quilts of Valour. I had always wanted to make a half square triangle quilt so that’s what I did.


Once I had a pile of completed HST’s  I put them up on my design wall and  started experimenting with different blocks.   It was fun to just keep flipping the HST’s and coming of with so many interesting designs.


I liked the last one the best so I worked on how to combine several of them into a final design for my quilt top.  I used the left over HST’s and made them into quarter square triangles to use in the border.


Here is the finished quilt



There was a ton of ruler work on this quilt.  My hand was aching from holding the ruler too firmly.

I added an extra 1/4 inch red flange under the binding to give the quilt a little extra border.
