...and a little of that...and a teeny tiny bit of something else.
This is the sewing I've been up to the past couple of days.
I found a few bags of odd-sized HSTs amongst my sewing supplies. I had seen the top quilt in a picture of mini quilts. Yes--I am still making some for my sewing room wall. Will they ever be hung is the question. Since I had all the HSTs already sewn, that mini quilt was sewn up in a jiffy. It will eventually have a small border.
Pinterest is to blame for the next two blocks. A slew of my HSTs were 2-1/4" square...then I happened upon a large stack of ones that were 2-1/2" square, so I trimmed them down to add to the mix.
The last teeny tiny quilt is a tree ornament that measures 2-1/2" square (notice how large the thread looks). I made a set of 3 for a friend for Christmas (all in different purples--her favorite color) and am wondering what to add for a hanger. They are paper pieced.
Now I'm going to pin sets of 22 HSTs together to see how many blocks I can make with what I have already of the second quilt down. How would you set these very pointy blocks? I don't want to set them side by side as the points will touch each other and add even more thickness to a block that is already loaded with crowded intersections. All ideas welcome. I have one, naturally, but want to see what you all suggest.
