In Progress – North Woods HST Strip Quilt

This was such a fun quilt to make! I finished up the top a couple of days ago and finally got some good pictures of it. I really like how this came out. I’ve gone from no Christmas quilts to two this year! I was thinking about sending this one to the long-armer, but I think I may do it myself. We’ll see I guess. 🙂

In Progress – North Woods HST Strip Quilt

My latest quilt is coming along quite nicely! I really like this pattern and it’s super easy to make! Here are a few photos from the past couple of days work on it.

Untrimmed blocks laid out to get an idea of the final layout:

In Progress – North Woods HST Strip Quilt

Back in March, I won a jelly roll of the upcoming North Woods line by Kate Spain for Moda. I’ve been trying to decide what to make with it and I finally came across the HST Strip Quilt pattern by @saracecilquilts and Red Rainboots Handmade. I think it will be perfect for this jelly roll! On Friday, I got my strips ironed and sewed into four-strip sets. Yesterday, I cut them into 8.5″ blocks and cut my solid (Kona Bleach White) into 8.5″ strips. Today, I’m going to cut the solid into blocks and start making my HST blocks. 🙂
