Introducing HST in Make Modern Magazine

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.
