Modern HST Sampler Quilt: Lantern & Stepping Stones

Another month of the Modern HST Sampler came with a new method of making HST and two more blocks for the quilt. This was the first time using the magic 8 method for HST and I must say it is a favorite for making a large number of HST!


My version of Lantern.


My version of Stepping Stones, my favorite block so far. (May have something to do with making it with my favorite Cotton+Steel print!)

I am really enjoying improving my accuracy for HST and it has definitely helped with other quilt projects already!

Linking up with Alyce from Blossom Heart Quilts for Sew Cute Tuesday.

  2. I'm learning a lot on the HST quilt along too. It's a good opportunity to practice accuracy when there's only one block to make at a time.Your blocks look great - it'll be really interesting to see all the completed quilts.

  3. Your use of jacks fabric in the Stepping Stones made me think of playing hopscotch and all those fun kid games. I also showed my Modern HST Sampler blocks today. I'm using the Rainbow Scrap Challenge colors of the month, thus meeting two goals at once.

  4. The C&S prints look great mixed with the essex linen! I love finding new little short cuts to make a block easier to make!

  5. Looking good. The grey background makes the colours really pop.
