HRT BOM Final Blocks

I finally caught up with the last two blocks in the Modern HST BOM - November and December.

All my HST were made ahead of time.  The HRT were paper pieced and where it made sense, I created a paper pieced pattern in the shape of 2 HRT sewn together to avoid a seam!

I enjoyed the QAL quite a bit and appreciated knowing at the start how many HST and HRT were required for the whole quilt.  I decided my blocks would finish at 8" which means my HST are 2".  

This is my tentative layout.  I like how new shapes are created when blocks are laid with each other. With a 3 x 4 block layout, the quilt top would be 24" x 32". I'd like to turn it into a 36" x 36" layout so that I can donate it to a local hospital - they use quilts 36" x 36" to cover incubators in the NICU. Work to be done on the final layout since I don't really want to make new blocks. 

Check out all the blocks at #modernhstBOM2022.

Have a wonderful day! Patty


  1. Looks great. Sounds like maybe adding a few border will get you to the size you want, but I look forward to seeing how you puzzle it all together.

  2. Pretty fabrics and blocks. Looking forward to seeing the finished quilt.

  3. Oh gosh, I sure like this! How did I miss this Modern HST BOM? Well, perhaps I saw it and didn't know what it was. And, I also know I can't do them all... as much as I'd like to! (smile). Yours is so cool! Is it large?


Thanks for visiting Elm Street Quilts. Looking forward to hearing from you!
