What's Up 07.18.16

What's up on the wall this week will be the "Words to Live By. Last week I was able to complete all the 12 inch blocks and now ready to sew the setting triangles on. 

Been working steadily on the HST, have the fabric marked and ready to sew. Started with 28 pieces that marked for making the HST and now I'm down to nine.

I have sewn some of the half square triangles. 

Waiting to be trimmed. 

And have completed trimming over 250 of the HST.
So looking forward to having all of these HST completed so I can start assembling the center block and the borders. 672 HST it's quite a few.

The center is almost done, just 2 leaves left to be appliqued and doing the stems.

I've been so busy trying to get this quilt top completed that I have put off my circles and my rainbow scrap challenge.

  1. That is an awful lot of HSTs. Wow. I can't wait to see this quilt assembled.

  2. I am impressed by the speed that you work. It really is looking incredible, looking forward to seeing it all assembled.

  3. This is going to be a gorgeous quilt!

  4. You are going to have a beautiful quilt in the end. I have this pattern but have never made a start on it.

  5. Your applique blocks are beautiful, but I'm intrigued by your HSTs. I have never seen this method before and I can't figure out how you're doing it from the pictures. Is there a tutorial somewhere for making HSTs this way?

  6. Rebecca check out the right hand side bar for some more great ways to make them listed under Half Squate Triangles. Thanks for a lovely visit Kathleen. I also stopped in and visited some back issues so much to learn in your blog Kathleen thanks so much for sharing. Cheers Glenda

  7. Oh gosh it is going to be so beautiful!!! xx

  8. Thanks for the inspiration, I started this quilt awhile ago and got side tracked, must get back to it.

  9. Your quilt is looking gorgeous, although that is a lot of HS triangles to get through!


Welcome friends to share a thought, I enjoy reading them and will try my best to reply back by email most of the time. But if you do not hear back it's because you are a no-reply blogger.
