Just when you think all is going according to plan and you have counted the right number of blocks--BAM! you find out that you have miscounted and you are short 4 blocks! Well, you might think that four blocks isn't too bad, but when you are working with 80 blocks and you end up with only 76--that can only mean you will need more HSTS for those blocks; each block requires 7 HSTS and when you have been sewing HSTS for so long-----you just want it to end!!
|Four blocks to the right that need HSTS period! and 20+ blocks to the left that still need HSTS along the bottom|
|First we need to print off the right size HSTS from Quilting and Whatnot website|
|The page is printed 8.5" x 11" but I cut them into thirds to have some interest in the HSTS--easy to sew on small stitch. Then cut apart, tear off paper and you have the correct size HSTS you need for the project|
|Okay, this just isn't enough and you want a good variety too!|
|completed 50+ blocks--just 30 more to go! And yes, we have the borders already for the final top to be assembled--only if we could finish up with those HSTS Blues! |
