power through...

If you're cutting and sewing and wiping sweat from your forehead, know that it is possible to piece all 600 of those HST's.

This morning, I powered through the last of them. Now, just pressing and cutting off the dog ear. But, I have to get on to something else.



Today, I'm changing my stash storage and doing some sorting and dividing. I love the days I get to play with my stash!! But, lately, it's gotten overwhelming and I have some stash busting plans.

So, let's go dig in!

WOW! I LOVE your pile of beauties. I am just starting the sewing of mine. I do have more than the 600 cut. I starched the red and pink together with the iron then did the cutting. They stay together better that way. Love your pinks!
XOXOXOXOXOO Subee

I must have missed something, why 600 hst? You getting ready for a mystery or something? Wow, I was just complaining to myself over the 65 I had to sew this week. I almost have the blocks done for the quilt top I am working on and then I can quilt it. Yea Good luck with the stash busting.

Congrats on getting all those hst's done, Lane. I haven't even started yet but I think I'm going to take a tip from Lori at Humble Quilts and use the paper method or "thangles I can't wait to see the "big reveal".

I'm taking part in a swap next year with friends. I have a pile of 150 blocks that is not quite half way. I am in awe of the 600 hst
I'm sure that your quilt will be well worth it. I loved your neutral blocks too.
