Half Square Triangle Quilt (#79)

A small half square triangle quilt made with Colette by Brenda Watson and shot cotton by Kaffe Fassett.  A great way to use left over fabric from quilts here and here.
It was fun to make a smaller quilt and try and use every scrap possible.  The half square triangles were cut using the Accuquilt 4.5" finished die.  
I used Aurifil 50wt. Neon Orange (#1104) to quilt in a wavy lined grid and love the way it showed up on the dark blue.  
My new goal is make a little quilt with the left overs after I finish a bigger quilt and it is proving quite enjoyable. I call them my "Franken-wennies" (homage to Tim Burton) - quilts that start out with no set design or size ... improvising all the way.

Materials:

Colette by Brenda Watson / Blend
Wovens in Blue Jean / Shot Cotton / Kaffe Fassett
Aurifil 50wt. #1104 / #2600
Warm & White batting
Minky / Azurite / Hawthorne Threads
Accuquilt Half Square Triangle / 4.5" finished
Size: 51" x 53"
