Scrappy Celebration


Elm Street Quilts HRT

My HRT (half-rectangle triangle) scrappy celebration quilt is done!  The quilt measures 72 x 80'' and is composed of 720 HRT blocks all made from Moda Sweetwater fabric scraps and charm packs.


The whole process of assembling the quilt and the FMQing was made more enjoyable when I would rediscover favorite prints.  I love those polka dots!


The quilt was quilted on my domestic machine in a simple meander.  I had 4 yards of the blue fabric in my stash for the backing.


Want to make one of your own?  Check out my tutorial for the half-rectangle triangle block!


I'll be linking up at Brag about Your Beauties Freemotion by the River,   WIP Wednesday's,  Let's Bee SocialMidweek Makers.  Needle and Thread Thursdays, Finish it Up Friday and Finished or Not Friday.



Have a wonderful day! Patty
