I have a new idea that I have been wanting to test out and explore. It’s part of a series of ideas I have that I call “Combinatorics”. The easiest way to explain what I mean by combinatorics is making half-square triangles (HSTs) using the two at a time method: you start with 2 base blocks (plain squares) and create a new shape (HSTs) by combining them in a specific way. So it’s really nothing new, just a fun way to explore combining blocks to create something in perhaps a different way.
Anyway, I’m excited to get to play with one of the ideas as I make a baby quilt for friends. I received the fabric for the quilt, and I am definitely looking forward to combining these prints together.
Upper left to lower right, the fabrics (with links to the Etsy shops that I purchased them from) are: Modern Mini Graph Paper White by Lori Holt of Bee in my Bonnett for Riley Blake, Graph Paper in Bachelor Blue by Heather Givans from the Jot collection for Windham, and Dear Stella’s Beautiful Night Sky Navy with Shooting Stars.
I can’t decide which I like more: the graph paper prints or the navy print with shooting stars. I think it’s time to write out my draft instructions so I can test them as I make the baby quilt!
