More HST love

I’ve been working on a quilt this week for Cheryl Arkison’s Quilts Recover.  When I first decided to participate, I thought I might make a quilt inspired by her logo which I love.  As the time got closer though, I saw this quilt using the mosaic block that people are doing as part of the Summer Sampler Series quilt along.  I love the block and, better yet, it is made up of HSTs!  (I do plan to get over my obsession soon :))

Next question:  what colors?  I’ve been feeling like working with some black lately (unusual for me) so I decided that would be the background color.  In general, when I make quilts for charity I try not to make them for young children.  Based on the charity quilts I see at the large guild I belong to, there are already many quilts for younger children.  So, I tend to think about teenagers, boys or less girly girls – or maybe even adults!

Anyway, I looked at my fabrics and decided on white, two yellows and grey.  This shot is from my design wall a couple of days ago.  I’ll be shipping it off to Cheryl soon.

    This looks great! I really like how the pattern gives the quilt some movement, and the colors are awesome!

    Why would you ever consider getting over a HST addiction. There is nothing wrong with that kind of addiction. Nothing at all. Especially when it allows you to produce like this!
    Can't wait to see it in person!

    I agree – I collect knitted garments for charity; we always gets lots of kids' sweaters but rarely adult sizes!

    I like your design; at first I thought it was computer generated – when you said it was on your design wall I took a closer look! Well done you.
