Sewing HSTs

trimming half-square triangle blocks
November 2017
The hourglass blocks that I made for Time in a Bottle used only a fraction of the stack of 6.5 inch squares, so I needed to reduce the stack even more.

I pulled 84 assorted blocks from the stack, and then cut squares from some beige fabric that was trimmed from a quilt back. The 84 colored squares were paired with 84 beige squares to create 168 HST (half-square triangle) blocks. I trimmed the blocks to 5.5 inches to be used in another Quilt of Valor.

  2. I am often surprised, after embarking on making a quilt, how little the stash has been reduced by. Great step forward for the next quilt by making these half square triangles.

  4. Looks like another great quilt on the way.
    I haven't got a HUGE stash, but really, I often wonder if I will get ever through what I do have. Just have to keep sewing, I guess!

  7. I thought my yarn stash was never going down, but it seems your fabric stash is the same! It will be fun to see what you make with the HST’s
