It has certainly been a busy week of marking, cutting, pressing and trimming. Yep, this was the week to complete the HSTs for the Star Surround Quilt A-Long over at Happy Quilting.
I am happy to report I finished them with a little time to spare.
Of course, I had to make it hard on myself by using a number of directional fabrics. They are going to look fantastic in the quilt but I really had to pay attention when I was marking.
I haven't trimmed this many HSTs in a long time! There was quite the pile of trimmings to toss when I was through!
Working with all the fabrics this week, I am still excited to see this quilt all put together. Using so many different prints, it did get a little confusing but I have lots of extra fabric to remake blocks if need be.
...and speaking of remaking blocks, how about a few outtakes from the week...
Right sides together.....Right sides together...
...Really!? I'd like to be able to say I only did this once....
(yes, I made HSTs out of the same fabric. Grrrrr, where's my seam ripper!)
How about you, did you spend the week sewing HSTs for your Star Surround quilt?
Thanks for stopping by! I hope you stay tuned to see this quilt progress.
