Hattie’s Trick

Hattie’s Trick blocks from the Two Sister Sampler are complete,  “Just In Time”  (JIT).  That has been a fad in manufacturing for years!  Since I don’t actually need a new top to quilt yet, I delayed the completion so that this top is completed when I DO need something to quilt!  (Do you buy that?)

Hattie’s trick is another layout using half square triangles.  I feel like I have made a lot of these this year.   Mine are four colors, with three values.


Annemarie Chany , Author of Sister Sampler Quilts, used two-tone blocks .  I like them better that way.  The quilt looks great! This kind of block would be easy to setup in EQ7 to try out different color and fabric combinations.  I might try it with some of the other blocks from this series.

I’ve been busy in my quilt lab for the last couple of weeks, and have some more finishes ready to trickle out.  Some are quilts, and others are small projects.   I’m keeping this post short so that I can work on them!

What’s in my queue of finishes?

  • Falling Charms and Scalloped Edges with Bias Binding
  • Falling Flakes Mini – Minus the Hand Stitching
  • Valentines Mini Quilt
  • Quick Curve- Urban Runner
  • More Minecraft
  • Curve it Up – Topside Reveal
  • Star Trek Zipper Quilt
  • Chocolate Bunnies
  • ?  Will I get to teach my first class?
    ?  Will I get lucky and find myself a “hot rod” machine project?
  • And more…  I wouldn’t want to be bored!

Be Happy! It’s a choice.

    Sounds like you’ve been busy getting lots of projects done. I hope this means you’re back 100%. I love how you took the picture in B&W so you can easily see the contrast.
