I'm still sewing, pressing, trimming, and sorting HSTs for my latest scrap project. I've been at this for, what, two weeks now? Needless to say, it's getting old, but I am making progress. All the HSTs are sewn and pressed, now I am just trimming them up.
Each of the tall stacks in the back has 120 finished HSTs. The stacks in the front still need to be trimmed and counted. I needed 576 HSTs for a bed size quilt and it's looking like that will be no problem.
After trimming a few hundred HSTs today I was tired and bored so I decided to sew something quick and fun. I got out this great babushka fabric I got in a scrap pack and started pulling fabrics to match the colors. Everything got cut to whatever width was available x WOF and thrown up on the design wall.
Almost all of these fabrics are from Hawthorne Threads scrap packs. I know I have said before how much I love these. They truly are the greatest. I've ended up with quite a few large scale prints that are definitely not my usual color scheme; I used a couple in this top and they look perfect.
I can't take credit for the idea to ruffle two of the strips. I saw it on a blog somewhere, and I've no idea where. Can't wait to get busy with some FMQ on this top!
Linking up to Judy's Design Wall Monday.
