Beebolt Block!

As part of our swag bag at Sewing Summit, beebolt gave fabric squares to everyone so we could each make a block which will then be made into a quilt and auctioned off for charity. I decided to give half square triangles another try. These little guys are often tricky (at least, for me!), but after seeing Amy's tutorial (she's so talented and explained this so well!), I knew this is what I wanted to do for the beebolt block. See?! They are so versatile! They start out looking like this:Then they can be laid out like this:or this:
or this:or this:
or this:

and so many more choices! In the end, I went with this, framing it out in orange - my favorite color!
I'm excited to see what everyone comes up with, and can't wait to see how it all comes together in a finished quilt. Thanks, beebolt!


  1. I love the versatility of HSTs. They rock! And the orange you chose to frame your block is perfect! I am hoping to get my block made this weekend.

  2. This turned out great! Thanks for the reminder that I need to get to work on this soon!

  3. Another gorgeous piece, Valerie! I particularly like the orange border. Great job!
