I started cutting and sewing half-square triangles (HST) for the quilt I decided to do for my parents. I wanted the quilt to have a scrappy look with 10 or so different fabrics in each of the two colors. But golly, this is a lot of cutting and trimming.
Putting the HSTs together really isn’t that bad. I’m cutting my fabric so that I can sew and then cut 50 HSTs at one time. Ironing and trimming to size comes next. I realize that trimming them to size is probably the most important part, but it is taking forever. This is what 400+ HST units look like.
Only 800 more to go…
The embroidery design I’ve been working on for the baby blanket is now looking like this.
And just because she couldn’t let me have the camera out without taking a picture of her..
So what are you working on?
Linking up with Lee at Freshly Pieced for WIP Wednesday.
