Thanks for your lovely comments on my previous blog post. I always envy the quilt patterns. I always wanted to make a quilt. But in my place we don't need a quilt as we have mild winter here. A cotton bed spread is enough to wrap us during that season that too only in the night. But I was always attracted towards the half square triangle quilt block. I was searching for a star pattern with half square blocks(for another project in crochet) I came across a block with so many quilt blocks with just half square triangles, that too in black and white. I always go for solid color cotton cloths while shopping and those blocks attracted me.
I am in a plan of making a tote bag with a touch of embroidery in it and then a spark came into my mind, why not I try this block in needlepoint stitches. And This is what I came up with. I used single thread canvas and embroidery threads(all 6 strands). I really liked the outcome. Now I am making a band with different half square pattern blocks for the bag.
The center square with orange and red colors has been done with the help of that quilt block. I have added borders with yellow and green.
Do you want to see those blocks. See here. Totally 72 different blocks are there and a finished quilt.
On my crochet hook now
I have completed all my embroidery kurti orders. So now I can concentrate on my mega cross stitch project. And some projects for christmas is also half done. Will be back with an embroidery finish. Bye.
