I have a number of irons in the fire, so to speak:
This star top was made some years ago, and has been waiting patiently to be finished up. I don't usually do borders like this, but I think this one needs it. So I spent some time this weekend making these 180 HST's and 4 corner stars. What a pain it is to make half square triangles! And those corner stars . . . an even bigger pain. All this is a bit fiddly for me, but the heart wants what it wants! I still have to cut another inner and outer border, and make a backing, so there is still some work to do before I get to sandwiching and quilting this.
here, and it doesn't take much effort or time to keep enough 1 1/2" strips cut to make into these 9 patches.
I suppose there is no better time than during this cold and stormy January weekend to get a bunch of quilting done.
Your HSTs look great. wow 180. Can't wait to see the finished product.ReplyDelete
Love those hsts! Scraps....I have loads of them. So what is cat mint? I have a semi new cat too, that one in my most recent post (adopted him from Montreal son)...he is pretty keen on touching everything in the house too. He might want some of that cat mint too. Your name will go into my draw! Good luck!ReplyDelete
