So as you may have seen in our recent post, we are introducing HSTs into the YouPatch quilt design suite! Here is the first pixel quilt I've made that incorporates triangles:

The original image was a pic I took about a year ago of my daughter Ella blowing bubbles.

Rather than go with my usual bright solid fabrics, I wanted to incorporate a palette that was a little different so I asked my dear friend Louise (who usually goes for a softer palette than I do) to select the fabrics for me. Not only did she select something gorgeous and a little different, she went with textured fabrics.... all purchased from Amitie.

From L-R: Robert Kaufman dot in pink, Quartet Collection by Faye Burgos for Marcus Fabrics, Zenith by P&B Textiles, Robert Kaufman quilters linen in silver, Robert Kaufman quilters linen in platinum.

The piecing was certainly more fiddly with the smallest HSTs measuring 1 inch (sewn). But it was so worthwhile. I am really happy with the end result.

Machine quilted by the lovely Kylie Cannon (who can be contacted via Amitie) with some added pink hand-quilting (by ME!) on the blown bubbles.

And just because I had fun photographing this quilt, here's another shot in a different location:

We haven't yet incorporated the HST option into the YouPatch website but if you are busting to do a HST pixel quilt, get in touch and we'll see what we can do!

Happy stitching to you all!!
