Finally! Something that I can share that isn’t a surprise!
Remember those jewel-tone pieces parts a couple of blog posts back? Well the HSTs became hourglasses and I trimmed them down to square them. Then I decided to add some more brights and they made friends with some very bright 16-patches. And the result is almost glaring. Not quite as bright as it looks in the picture, but it just might glow in the dark. (As more rows have come together it’s settling in.)
It reminds me of the Elmer the Elephant books.
And then going all the way back to New Year’s day I’m finally working on the HSTs quilt. I’m making more of the little 3″ 9-patches and slowly trimming down the 2″ HSTs.
I think once these are trimmed down I will have all but some of the 3.5″ HSTs finished. I should be able to start assembling the blocks in earnest.
I’m finishing up the binding on one of the presents. Hopefully soon I can post something about it. (There should be lots of photos by Christmas time.)
