600 or so half square triangles

 I couldn't rest until I had done something with at least one UFO ... I had this box of 600 or so half square triangles in shades of blue.   I was going to make an Ocean Waves quilt but changed my mind and then left the little blocks just sitting there.   Cleaning up my quilting room I found I had lots of UFO's.

So ... yesterday I pieced those little blocks all together into this 57 x 57 inch quilt, put the borders on today and quilted it with the pattern Waterworld using a nice varigated blue King Tut cotton thread ... and put the binding on.  I will be able to stitch the binding down tonight.

 A close up ... you will see that there isn't quite enough constrast between the lights and darks to make the pinwheels really noticeable ... but I like the overall effect.
The backing fabric ... I used a pale blue thread on the back so it blended.

Happy Quilting for now ... Jane x
