Modern HST Sampler - Q2 Blocks

Alyce at Blossom Heart Quilts is hosting a Modern HST Sampler quilt along this year.

You can see my Q1 blocks here.

And here are my Q2 blocks:




Faceted Stripe



We've been learning how to make 3-inch and 4-inch finished HST's using various methods:  two-at-a-time, four-at-a-time, and eight-at-a-time.  It's been great learning new techniques.

The tutorial for Block #13 is out....2-inch HST's....oh my....


  1. It's amazing what can be done with a simple HST. These blocks are terrific.

  2. I really like Diagonal, but maybe it's just because it's all blues. LOL!

  3. Love the colours. I'm waiting until I'm over this cold before attempting the 2 inch HST's. Could you let me know when I can mail my squares.

  4. HST. Time consuming but I love em

  5. HST's are so versatile as shown by your blocks.

  6. Looking good! I always have such a difficult time deciding on colors/placement when I'm doing a sampler BOM. One of the things I like about quilting is how there is always something new to learn. Keep up the good work! XO

  7. They are all looking great!! I do love HSTs and it's fun how versatile they can be. Looking forward to seeing the next one!

  8. You're doing a great job making these. A Quilt Along for HST is such a great premise. I usually only make two at a time, but it's nice to know of other ways, especially if a whole bunch are needed. You'll be fine with 2"ers.

  9. Love these! I may have to go check out her block samplers! And add that to my "list" Will you make a quilt with all your sampler blocks?
