I think I might just have overdone the cutting out of triangles to make HSTs (half square triangles) for my Friendship's Garden quilt as I seem to have this many left over....
You may think this is the same photo as yesterday but I assure you it is not. My maths was not correct - I was one HST out for each row!
Do you know how many HSTs are in this quilt? Nope - nor do I but I am just counting ...1,2,3,...11 ...25....37....46....78....99.....150.....200....280! That's how many and I have finished them all....joined them up....and stitched the quilt top together.
So far so good as they say but I cannot do the happy dance yet - well ok a little one - as I have an applique border to add on and applique is a scary word at the moment as I haven't done significant amounts of needle turn applique since I was doing this quilt in 2005/2006!
Do you want a photo...?
Well here is a teaser.....
More revealed tomorrow after I edit the countless photos I took while ably assisted by Saffy the cat! Isn't she adorable!??
Great view I think! And for Saffy too!
I am quite excited this week as I am going to go to Birmingham on Friday, to the NEC, to the Festival of Quilts (FoQ). I am hoping to put faces to blog names so if you are there please let me know. I am a FoQ virgin so any tips for a really big quilt show would be most welcome!
