I’m excited to share one of my latest quilt finishes with you today. It’s called HST and the pattern can be found in the current issue (#5) of Make Modern Magazine.
HST designed, pieced and quilted by Christa Watson
When the gals at Make Modern invited me to submit a design, this idea literally popped into my head. I love making half square triangles and thought what a riot it would be to make a quilt from half square triangles that form one larger, modern HST.
HST on my bed – I’m not much of decorator, but this quilt brightens up my room!
It turned out so well that I now use it on my bed and it is so comfy and snuggly! I used Alison Glass Handcrafted batiks from Andover fabrics along with textured solids in 2 shades of grey with a pop of yellow/green just for fun! For batting, I chose the highest loft of Quilter’s Dream cotton that I could and it is very warm. I just love this quilt!

Hmmm, you say you aren’t much of a decorator, EXCEPT- you decorated PERFECTLY with that beautiful quilt. I admit I like seeing the whole quilt, but it is so nice and gives you a real sense of how the quilt looks in real life when it’s on a bed. Thanks for doing the extra step.
Brilliant quilt. Thank you for sharing you are so talented
This is lovely Christa! Congratulations.

I love this quilt and love HST, too! How amazing! I think it looks great on your bed as well! If I ever visit, I am going to snuggle under it and give it a try! hehe
