mmc in phx asked:
I love this quilt! I have one that is very similar cut out and ready to sew; I don't know how to make this a quilt has you go. Please advise.
tholtz answered:
Thank you so much mmc, I'm glad you like my baby quilt! The new Craftsy quilting online course, "Quilting Big Projects on a Small Machine" has some quilt as you go techniques but I did it differently. I will post my technique once I have a little more time.

Thank you so much Fabric Mad, many of them are from Tula Pink and Joel Dewberry, my two favorite designers.
Marie Flannery asked:
I love these fabrics - beautiful! How big are your half square triangle blocks and what size is the finished quilt? I love half square triangles, too - so many possibilities!
tholtz answered:
Thanks Marie. I cut my initial squares 6" X 6" then sewed a 1/4 inch on either side of the diagonal = 5.5" less seam allowance on all sizes I guess would give a 4.5" final block size? If my calculations are correct, it would be 36" long X 27" wide, big enough for a stroller or "Linus" blankie. I gave this quilt away so I'm not exactly sure what the final size was.
