The HST Quilt Plan

After sewing a lot of 2" finished half-square triangles,  I finally sat down with Electric Quilt and made a plan.   I decided to add some 4" finished half-square triangles to the mix as well as some 2" plain squares. 

Sometimes I get completely lost playing with the possibilities in Electric Quilt.  But I had seen a block that I liked. So I pulled that one up - and then - of course - I changed it.  I only changed it to make the design work out better.   
Here is my final design (maybe - always subject to change - ha ha.) 

Looking at it again, I am thinking.....I have a lot more 4" half-square triangles to sew.  The outer section was originally designed as pinwheel blocks, but changing the inner part to red really added a lot of pop to the design. 

Half of the center 4"  half-square triangles for the blocks are sewn.  And the first block is sewn also. 
My blocks will be more scrappy than the design show above because the small half-square triangles are made from a 2 1/2" strip package. 
I am thinking and hoping that it will look great when it is finished. 

But right now, I am going to play with some watercolor paint and see what interesting "mess" I can create with it. 

Until Next Time,  
Stay Creative
