Festival of Half Square Triangles

Over the last few weeks there has been a 'Festival of Half Square Triangles' being hosted by Megan of Canoe Ridge Creations. There was a great summary of the festival posted yesterday, you can find it here. This week, it is our turn to share HST projects that we have completed within the last 6 months. The link party will be hosted on Megan's blog from April 16 - 22.


I've shown these before, but they're getting one more feature here! This pair of cushions were made last fall to go with my Swoon quilt, though they were totally an after-thought. I didn't realize when making Swoon how many leftover HSTs I would end up with after trimming the flying geese units! I used the leftovers to make blocks and then turned them into cushions for our bed {there is a third cushion in this set, but it is not made with HSTs}. I love them, partly because Hometown fabric is still one of my ultimate favourites, and also because I never even planned to make the cushions and sort of winged it, yet they turned out better than I thought they would!

Be sure to visit the linky party by clicking on the button below to check out what everyone else has made!

Beautiful pillows. I guess you just sparked an idea for what to do for my second pillow. Thanks and good luck.

I love them! Hometown was a great line and even better that the pillows were a happy accident. :)

What a great idea! I'm working on a swoon quilt as well and was wondering what to do with all those left over triangles.

Your swoon is so charming and the pillows are very cool.
