Do you get tired of seeing my trash? I just love saving these little trimmings and watching them grow, and in this case, grow and grow and grow. I think it's a little peek into what the overall finished quilt is gong to look like.
My 600 hsts are done! I got a good start on them while on my retreat in Florida. Nothing makes piecing and trimming hsts go faster than doing it with friends where you have nothing better to talk about than where we're going to eat lunch, then dinner, and will we have time for frozen yogurt.
I hope I never tackle a project that would require me to fill this basket with hsts, I bet this basket could easily hold 2,000 of them. But I think 600 is a new record high for hsts for one project for me.
I've also pieced and trimmed the 180 flying geese. Which gets me to this.
My first block is done.
I've been looking at Carrie's sashing that surrounds these lovely blocks and think it may be a little too much for my delicate prints. I'm toying with the idea of adding some background fabric to soften things up a bit.
And while I'm changing things, I'm thinking my quilt needs a different name , I'm toying around with that too.
No football this weekend, the saddest weekend of the year, maybe I'll actually get out and see a movie, then I won't feel like a complete dolt while watching the Oscars on the 24th. Think I can watch all the best movie nominees in a little over two weeks? We'll see.
