Modern HST Sampler

I didn't plan to join any BOMs this year, but I couldn't stand the temptation. The Aurifil Designer of the Month hosted by Pat Sloan, had a way too good January block to be overlooked. Now I am hooked, and I know the 12" blocks will look good together with all these talented designers!

Modern HST Sampler QAL

In addition, Alyce over at Blossom Heart Quilts is hosting The Modern HST Sampler. Every second week we get a new tutorial for a HST block, and there will be 24  12" blocks when the QAL is done.

I have chosen to use the Good Neighbors fabric designed by Amanda Jean Nyberg for Connecting Threads for the QAL. I am using a light aqua solid for the background. The two first blocks are now completed, and I am really pleased with the result. Looking forward to the rest of the blocks!

  1. liking your bocks Amanda`s fabric is great not sure f we can buy it here in the UK must check it oit. Have also signed up to this BOM but struggling to pick a background fabric I want a dark one but checked out our local shop but they had very little in so still thinking

  2. Nice and bright, you are tempting me in catching up and quilting along!

  3. Oh, I do like your blocks. I'm making the HST ones, too, but from scraps. I like the fabrics you've chosen. Thanks for stopping by Desertsky Quilting during the Nuts About blog hop today!
