My Sewful Retirement

A Quilting Journey

Falling Diamonds – HRT Wall Hanging

Hello everyone – happy Tuesday!

Ever since I made my half rectangle triangle pillow cover

earlier this year I’ve wanted to try other HRT quilt layouts. Using, fall colored scraps, Kona Snow for the background and my extremely useful/handy Creative Grids Perfect Triangle ruler, I created the falling diamonds wall hanging.

I love the graphic simplicity of the design. For this wall-hanging the half rectangle triangle units finish at 3 x 6 inches.  The Creative Grids Perfect Rectangle ruler features a 2 to 1 ratio to cut proportional half rectangles up to a finished length of 9 inches, which will be perfect for a larger quilt I plan to make. Another bonus feature to this ruler is having two engineered notches for perfect alignment when sewing.

My wall hanging measures 36 x 36 inches, I used scraps for the binding and used my walking foot for straight line quilting . I love the floral batik used for the backing.

  3. Hi Karla! WOWEE – that pillow is just stunning. I absolutely LOVE the colors. The white is so crisp against those beautiful oranges, tans and grays. And the simple quilting also is just perfect. Your wall hanging is beautiful, as well. I can suggest a good home for either project should you ever tire of them. Happy Wednesday to you! ~smile~ Roseanne
