Today one of my favorite quilts is on display over at Moda Bake Shop. Directions to make it are too.
I've made it twice.
and I still can't figure out how to piece the red corners without wasting a bunch of fabric. However, in the hopes of making lemon-aide out of lemons....here are some ideas for what can be done with the 128 "wasted" hsts.
The following designs are each made from 64 hsts. That means, if you made the 128 hsts suggested in the pattern, you can also make two minis or two pillows, or make the front and the back of one quilt....although please add some fabric around the edges of the back to make quilting easier.
I'm liking the pillow idea. What layout should I use?

Are your eyes bugging out yet? Mine are. I think I will make two pillows that are inverse of each other....how cool would that be?! I like Dispersal and Radiant the best....but I think I will let my eyes rest a bit before I attempt them.
Play with those pieces and see what else you can make.
When I made these I added a 2 1/2" border around each block before I quilted it to match the quilt. It made them perfect for a 20" pillow form.
I'd love to see your projects made from my patterns. Please feel free to join my Flickr group, Tops to Treasures!
