The HST quilt
I really love this quilt and I'm happy to know that it's going to one of our veterans. This quilt is all scrappy. The gray fabrics are leftover from previous veterans quilt backs and the colors are all from my hand dyed scrap bin. I tend to periodically cut my scrap bin contents with my Accuquilt Go. I already had a big stack of 4" HST pieces when I got the idea for this quilt.
This quilt wasn't my idea and, unfortunately, I don't remember where I got the idea. But it's a simple quilt. This is the block.
The secret to this quilt is that it's all the same block but alternating blocks are turned upside down.
I worked up the EQ file in 2 different shades of gray so you can see the block layout.
Cool, isn't it?
I may need to make another of these.

Thanks for posting the info about this quilt! I love it. It's a different take on zig zag quilts. It looks so good with your hand dyed fabrics and the gray zig zags. Your hand dyes really add something special to this quilt.

I can see you making several of these because I doubt you'd get tired of the design. It can be changed up to whatever you happen to have. I bet it would be stunning made in black, white and greys too.

That turned out so beautiful! I'm sure whomever gets it will love it. Thanks for sharing it.

I love this one! I like working with HSTs so I am going to go through my batik/hand dye scraps and see what I can come up with. Thanks for the idea!
