HST quilt

I go each month to a Modern Quilt Group Meeting at Broadbents.  Each six months we have a main challenge.  So far we've done bricks, strips, and now half-square triangles.  Everyone comes up with such amazing things, I love show and tell!  This time we got a packet of 75 six inch squares of fabric.  I added another 55 to the mix to get a quilt that is just under twin sized.

  I used a very light grey for my solid, I know it looks white in photos, it's not.  I backed this quilt with a Amy Butler print that I have had for quite some time.  It was just the right size, I love using stuff I already have.  I bound it with a navy blue print by Alexander Henry, I used it in these dresses a few years ago.

  I love how it turned out.  I like to call it the maze quilt.

This has been quite a year with lots of change and movement of our family.  I was surprised to see I have only managed to blog 8 times!  I feel like I have sewn, so I must have let blogging be the thing to slip.  We have moved twice and are now settled in our home.  That alone should improve my blogging.  I have been reflecting on my sewing goals for 2013 and am excited for the year ahead!

Oh, yeah, aren't we supposed to start our Baby Janes? I haven't even chosen any fabrics for it. I'm not sure if I want to go bright and fun or head down the Fig Tree road.

By the way, LOVE how your quilt turned out.
