I still have to give it a final trim and bind it - probably in solid red, which I don't have any of. I think the red/white print would make a good binding but I don't think I have enough of it left. Not without a whole lot of piecing.
Lots of firsts in this for me. First time for HST's, square in square, and pinwheels. Also, I didn't do just straight line quilting. Well yes, all the quilting lines are straight (or relatively so), but it's not just lines all the way across the whole thing.
I had trouble visualizing the layout and getting my colors where I wanted them - in retrospect I wish I'd reversed the fabric layout between the black triangles and the green squares. But still, not bad for a first go. And it's made with some random fat quarters I picked up at Hancock Fabrics last week for $1 each, so it was a thrifty little project.
I also used different color threads top and bobbin. It turned out ok, but I'm not sure it's something I'd do for a bigger project. At least not without a lot more practice and some major finagling with the tension settings to make sure the threads don't pull through. The quilting doesn't really show up with the red bobbin, but I am glad I didn't go with the white in the bobbin. Maybe some gold would've been nice?
I recommend this for a quick easy project.
Getting my Whoop on today with Sarah.
EDITED TO UPDATE:
I just couldn't leave it alone. But wow, binding this little bugger was a chore!
