It's a Flimsy! HRT Ragout




HRT Ragout
60 x 80
It's a flimsy! 



I started making these Half Rectangle Triangles  (HRTs) in September 2018 as a Rainbow Scrap Challenge (RSC) project to use scraps from the 4.5 width bin. 


I used a Tri-Rec ruler and cut a few pieces facing the wrong direction but I included those anyway. 


There's quite a mixture of prints, colors, neutrals - all from the 4.5 inch scrap bin which I hope to have emptied by year end. 



Since the start in September 2018 I just made a few HRTs each month using scraps from the 4.5 inch scrap bin in the RSC color of the month. Sometimes there would be lots of scraps in a color and sometimes hardly anything. I just used what scraps were in the bin only. 


I sewed the HRTs together randomly. 

I hope to finish this quilt this month so I'll declare it my

The "misplaced" units add sparkle! It's a delicious ragout.

Like all your commenters, I love the scrappiness of this one! The "wrong" ones are a fun surprise, I think! You always come up with the best names for your quilts, too.

Marly said...

Lovely! I like the way some of the triangles have changed direction, even if that was an accident of cutting. It adds to the fun!

Frédérique said...

Lovely, congratulations on this beautiful finish! Fun to look for the wrong direction triangles ;)

Libby in TN said...

Just say those "wrong" blocks are a design decision. Actually, I think they add interest to the quilt.

Nancy Near Philadelphia said...

Golly, I like this!

Jenny said...

So pretty, amazing what you can make from a bunch of leftover bits and pieces. Have you used up the scraps from the bin yet? Or is that a silly question?

gayle said...

I love those wrong-way triangles - they're like scattered laughter!

I absolutely LOVE the "backwards" blocks thrown into the mix!! It adds a lot of interest to your quilt top. Happy finishing!

mangozz said...

Another beautiful quilt top!

Quilter Kathy said...

Fabulous! I love how you sew blocks together randomly and include the mistakes and it turns out beautifully every time!

Rebecca Grace said...

What a gloriously cheerful quilt top! I love it!

Laura said...

Those misscut HRT's add a lot of interest! :)

Louise said...

The wrong way triangles totally make this quilt! That's what I call serendipity :)

Dorothy said...

I love this. And I love that you were able to say "####" did I do wrong ? and still put those blocks in the quilt top. My kind of quilter ;-)

Cathy said...

What a great quilt, and it’s made all the more interesting by including the “backwards” HRTs. Just this morning I pulled out the HRT die for my Accuquilt cutter as it’s one of the blocks I’m considering starting for RSC 2021. Heck, what’s one more project added to the list?

Gretchen Weaver said...

This is a beautiful flimsy, looking forward to the quilting. Happy stitching!

QuiltGranma said...

Hooray! Another flimsy finish!

Your scrap quilts are always so lively and this is one of the best. Love all those twinkling triangles. Just what I should do with some of mine.
