Half Square Triangle Quilt Layouts

Pondering possible quilt layouts for my very own bed.

All using the simple HST block.  The sky's the limit!

Which one is your favoute?

Any other HST layouts you can point me to?  I might add more to this post so I have a 'library' of HST designs.

  5. 3,4, or 5. That pretty much narrows it down, huh? :)

  6. I can't choose just one. I like 3,5 or 6

  7. It looks like I'm the only one, but I like #1 best :)

  8. Well, I'd have to pick #5, then #1, then #6. You said it was for your bed right? I think those would be my picks for a master bed b/c I thought of the centre block standing for 'faith' and everything else holding together b/c of it:) But...that might be a tad too deep for a quilt, no? LOL! :)

  9. I think it completely depends on what your fabric choices are and the look you are going for...do you know the fabrics? If you could share them and say "modern or traditional etc." I will answer :) I do love all HST designs though!

  12. My favorite is 5. Then 4 and 2. Your sister's green/gray quilt was beautiful...
    Have fun deciding!

  14. No matter which one you choose, I'm just amazed at all the different quilts that can be made from the same 1/2 sq triangle blocks!

  15. I love/hate HST quilts. I love how they look and the many ways you can change the layouts, but I hate making & trimming HSTs :) I've made 5 HST quilts now...a few that look like 6 & 11 (http://www.flickr.com/photos/michellenolsen/7438484022/in/set-72157631263741342, http://www.flickr.com/photos/michellenolsen/6778616442/in/set-72157631263741342/), a zig zag one like 2 (http://www.flickr.com/photos/michellenolsen/6965474793/in/set-72157631263741342/), and two others that have the same double pinwheel sort of layout, but the sashing changes the look (http://www.flickr.com/photos/michellenolsen/6861102627/in/set-72157631263741342/, http://www.flickr.com/photos/michellenolsen/6861102665/in/set-72157631263741342/).

  16. I like 11 but.. um.... are 6 and 11 the same? I like 11 cause it seems slightly less busy so I guess it would depend on the fabric choices.

  17. And then when you add colour along with light medium and dark the whole thing can become abstract or even suggest shapes, by where the colour winds about -- there are a couple of heart designs and suggestions of a horse, dog, or even a lobster type of shape! So much to Ponder! Enjoy the process!
