I have been having so. much. fun. this week! After finishing my commission quilt, I have time to play with my HSTs and boy have I been playing!
I started out with these HSTs that needed trimming...
...and started creating sweet little blocks for pincushions! I'll probably hand quilt these in the car while we're driving to the beach later this week. Hopefully I'll get some more made before we leave!
Then I grabbed some blue HSTs that were bonus blocks from Lilli's annual quilt a few months ago. I knew what I wanted to make, but didn't have enough of the HSTs to work, so I turned them into 3/4 triangle blocks, which gave me twice as many...
...and this is what I'm working on right now! This will eventually go to Little Lambs Foundation of Utah as part of Hands2Help. It's pretty small - about 36" square - so I think I'll straight line quilt it on vacation. Isn't that little bear the cutest?
There's still a lot of HSTs in that tub, but I'm having a great time dreaming up ways to use them. Some of them are tiny - only 1.25" - but those are great for pincushions or mug rugs, so that's what I'm making right now. We'll see what else comes out of that tub soon!
How's your little scrap monster doing these days?
