Half Square Triangles are Finished
Well, here it is at last. It’s so soft and snuggly, more Anna Maria Horner, this time her Folksy Flannels (I'm after the Voiles next). Quilted in straight lines 1/4 inch either side of each diagonal, I wouldn’t do it this way again as it was impossible to keep the line straight where all the points meet, especially with the flannel being so much thicker than quilters cotton. It let to a certain degree of wonkiness, most of which came out in the wash luckily… Anyway, it’s keeping us all snuggly and warm on the sofa in the mornings.
Here it is in action. Sorry the colour is so yellow, there was something funny going on with my camera but I’ve fixed it now (user error as always). And yes, the big one is often to be found sitting ON the little one…
