Half Square Triangle Star Quilt


I recently finished another quilt. This one is about 56” square. I wanted it to have a pattern, but not too obvious. Can you see the radiating star? It was a windy day, so it was a little difficult to get a good photo of the quilt top.

It is made from mostly half square triangles, except for the black floral squares that run diagonally.

The back has a row of flying geese with coordinating aqua fabric on each side.

The double fold French binding is a solid bright orange-red. 

If you like this quilt or want to see others, I have listed it in my Etsy shop, Honeysuckle Lane. If you don’t do Etsy, feel free to email me.

God bless!


Americana Quilt Eagles


A few years ago, I made some patriotic eagles using antique quilts and antique textiles. I found another cutter quilt and made a few patriotic eagles.
These are inspired by a bird I saw on an antique auction website years ago.

Thanks so much for visiting!
God bless,

Listing My Favorite Quilt


When I started making this quilt, I was making it to sell. But as I began choosing strips of fabric, I fell in love with pretty much each piece. And I decided to keep it. So I continued adding strips cutting a few here and there to break up the lines. I also added little 2 1/2” squares of green to add a subtle pop of color. And I used several shades of green to make the double fold French binding.

I quilted it on my Juki TL 2000 QI using a walking foot. 

For the back, I chose a brown plaid that I’d saved several years ago.

Can you choose a favorite fabric? I can’t!

My photos loaded out of order but I uploaded so many, I didn’t want to reload everything. I figured I’d just talk about them as I came to them.

You can see how I used a design wall to arrange and rearrange everything before I sewed it together.

Here is a closeup of the binding... I love hand stitching the binding! 

And once the quilt is washed... oh, I love the crinkly, wrinkled look!

I ended up leaving it in the stack of quilts that were for sale, but I never listed it. So, this week, I will be listing several quilts I have made.

My husband has been off work a few months and had back surgery in April. He’s still recuperating and it will be a while before he can go back to work. I decided to get back to working more and selling more of my handmade items.

Vintage Half Square Triangle Quilt


While this isn’t what you’d call a pretty quilt, it has some vintage charm.
I wanted to use the feedsack fabrics I had recently bought. And I wanted to make half square triangles... so I made this quilt!
All prints are vintage. The solids are new fabrics.
I did a simple meandering quilting design with my Juki TL 2000qi.

You can find this quilt in my Honeysuckle Lane Etsy shop.
It’s the perfect size for a baby quilt or toddler quilt, and if your decor is vintage or country cottage, that’s even better!

Scrappy Vintage Quilt


I’ve been making quilts for the past several months and realized I hadn’t shared them on my blog.
This one was definitely a labor of love. I collected vintage scraps, some very small scraps, and pieced them together to make scrappy squares to then sew into a very scrappy quilt.

I estimated about 300 - 400 pieces in the top. It measures 38” x 36”.

I ended up listing it in my Etsy shop and it has since gone to its new home.

I love how the top reminded me of stained glass...
