New baby's new quilt


P1000605, originally uploaded by salutor.

Meant to post this picture of the new baby's quilt before I left town this past weekend, but somehow didn't get around to it. Here it is, though, made only of 100 scrappy half-square triangles so that it was surprisingly easy and fast to make, especially since I learned a nice cheat for this particular block. For those of you who don't sew, please skip this next paragraph.

You take 2 equal-sized fabric squares and pin them right sides together. Then you draw a diagonal line from one point to another. Take it to your machine now and stitch 1/4" line on either side of the line. Then cut along your drawn line, open up your newly pieced squares, and press! Very easy.

I'll post more nesting related pictures soon for those of you who are interested in this sort of thing.

the quilt is adorable! You are so talented. There is no way I could do that. I don't have much success in sewing.
