You might remember a couple weeks ago on my charity link-up, Sew Some Love, I showed off this HST top. A local quilter, Kathy, was kind enough to finish off the HST top I made from a donated "Shine" fat quarter bundle. She did some stitch in the ditch that really brings out the design and lets the cute fabrics shine.
I wish I had taken pictures of the process of making this quilt. Basically I went through the FQ bundle and paired light and dark FQs, laying them right sides together. Then I drew on the back of one of each pair, outlining (4) 8.5" squares and then drawing diagonal lines 0.25" to either side of the center line. Sew on the diagonals and cut on the straight lines and it makes 8 HSTs at once with minimal waste.
The current Covered in Love block drive is going on until the end of June if you want to help out. More info here!
