Happy Diamonds Quilt

I’m so excited!  I finally got all these half square triangles sewn together and it looks pretty good I think. This is my first attempt at triangles and I was really worried about the points not being pointy.  Whew!  They’re not all perfect, and some of the points are cut off, but overall I’m extremely pleased with the way it turned out.

I didn’t have a pattern to follow.  I saw a few pictures on Pinterest (loooove Pinterest!) and I had a couple of charm packs that I knew would be perfect to make Half Square Triangles, so I decided to give it a try.  The charm packs I used were Basic Brights from Wyndham Fabric and white yardage from my local quilt shop.  I love these bright colors!  These colors make me feel so happy so I’m calling it the Happy Diamonds Quilt.

I still have to find a backing — hopefully tomorrow! — and then I’ll be able to get it finished.  I’m going to try free motion quilting on this one, so I’ll keep you posted on how that goes. Wish me luck!
