Thank you Cheryll for hosting us again for FNwF... always great to join in & get some good work done, as well as visit all the other ladies in the days afterwards!
Friday saw me out on my sewing room... pressing my white & blue fabric... cutting, stacking, cutting, stacking... just check out my pretty piles!
3 different sizes of squares... 2½", 3" & 4½"... 432 squares total!
The 3" squares are destined to become half-square triangles (yes it seems I have a thing for hst at the moment!) so I spent a little time on Saturday afternoon marking them in readiness for sewing.
There is 16 blocks in this quilt... I definitely won't be doing a marathon of HST creating... rather I'll sew 18 pairs, then cut/press/trim, in order to create the 36 HST needed for 2 blocks... then repeat that process.
The thought of pressing & trimming all 288 HST continuously... um, nope!!
Thanks again Cheryll for hosting us... do be sure to pop by her blog & check out 'Friday Night With Friends'... it's great fun!
mrHS arrived home on Friday night, from an overseas work secondment... 4 weeks in +40°C made for interesting days... & walking out of the airport back home to 5°C "was really quite bracing", apparently! But no rest for the wicked, he's back to work on Monday.
Don't forget, Tuesday is PYT again... get out your EPP & get ready to link it up!
I'd love to see some more names on the linky.
Hope the weekend has given you a chance to do something really enjoyable!
Thanks for stopping by!
