Evening in the Garden Quilts

Adventures in Fabric Art

WIP Wednesday: More Zebras!

1 Comment


I hope you all had a great weekend including those of you in the US, who were BBQing, parading, fireworking, etc.

I was tired from the extended weekend, and didn’t have firm plans to sew, until I saw Christa’s post this morning about her HST Remix.  Her scrappy half square triangles were exactly what I needed to turn the last of my zebra scraps into one more baby quilt!  I’ve pieced triangles before, out of necessity,  but always with the same fabric.  I don’t know why it never occurred to me make them scrappy!  So I shamelessly stole Christa’s idea and did just that.


All my scraps were already 6 7/8″ in width, but short of being squares.  I sewed them into one long strip, then cut that into squares to make the HSTs.  I paired them with pale green and gray fabrics.  I like how they soften it up.

I’m still arranging blocks.  The lower left corner is not as dark as in the photo, but I may sub out a lighter gray.

Anyway, thanks, Christa!

  1. I am a little behind in reading your blog. So sorry! I do like the way other quiltmakers inspire me to try something else. Have you seen my HST tutorial? Find it at: http://www.artquiltmaker.com/blog/2016/09/quilt-class-hsts/

    I have some large HSTs with no purpose and you have given me an idea. Thanks.
