This quilt was made using the blocks from the Modern HST sampler (hosted by Alyce of Blossom Heart Quilts) that I joined in last year.
Rather than add sashing, I simply sewed the blocks together and added a scrappy border of low-volume prints. The quilt finished at 54" wide so for the back I used the classic Ikea Nummer fabric.
For the quilting I chose a simple all-over free-motion quilting design similar to a square stipple.
I bound the quilt with a black and white stripe, inspired by the awesome quilts by Rita of Red Pepper Quilts.
My very cooperative quilt-holding husband helped me take photos of it in the city in front of a building with a lot of half-square triangles.
It was a bit of a challenge because it was windy and we kept getting photo-bombed by people and trams, but we got there in the end!
I'm linking up with the 2017 quarter 1 finish-a-long as this was top of my list of proposed finishes for this quarter!
