DWM - is it Spring yet?

Anyone besides me ready for Spring?  Soon, it won't be long now.  Shoot it's the middle of Feb, it's gotta start warming up soon.  I have something on my design wall but I'm not really sure about it.  I really wanted to do one of those HST quilts that goes all over with no rhythm or reason.  But I dunno, maybe it will grow on me.  I tried a few different patterns before I just sewed them all together and nothing really struck me as the one.  I took it as a sign that I really wanted that free for all look.  Now I've got it and I"m not really sure.  I think I 'll just stare at it a bit longer before sewing anything more.  Hmmm needs a name, how about HHST (Half Hazard Square Triangles).
HHST

While I'm staring I'll try to get some more done on this.  I have all the light parts completed and 4 rows of the dark.  Nine more rows to go. The dark is going a bit faster than the light.   I'm hoping when it comes off the frame I'll like it more.  I'm not sure I like the lines and the curves.  I'm hoping when all is done that the feathers on the dark will look more graphic.   We'll see.....I get the whole day to try to finish up the last of the dark rows.

  1. Your feathers are fabulous!!! Oh man! I really like the contrast of the quilting between the light and dark.

    I think your HST top looks awesome! I keep saying I need to make a bunch and just throw them on the wall :) So many quilts. . . so little time! :)

  2. Don't stare too long - that's your problem - you have to just let it happen. Your quilting just always takes my breath away.

  5. Absolutely gorgeous! I think you'll love it once it's off the frame--quilts have a way of doing that!

  6. I like HHST, but I often like unplanned looking quilts (I mean that in a good way!) and your colours are lovely too. Your quilting is awesome.
