It all started with this pile of left over HST's (half square triangles) from a Jo Morton LWC (Little Women Club) quilt called Pottery Shards. Seemed silly at the time to have HST's available and not use them.
Then, I found this HST quilt on Pinterest and fell in love with the borders and thought it would be a good way to use up my left overs.
I can hear Grandmother Bessie's words resonating in my ears:
So, three hundred and twenty four one inch and three quarter HST's later for the body of the quilt, progress was being made. For the record, I did not have that number of left over HST from making the Pottery
Ahh, then I reached my favorite part of the quilt: the first border also made of HST. It would have been in my best interest to have paid better attention in quilt and math class.
And since I had made and used so many HST's for the quilt, why not add a few more for the corner blocks of the quilt? Yes, thirty six more HST's. Since I was at the snack table when the quilt teacher was teaching the segment about adding corner blocks, I had to find instructions on adding corner blocks.
Weeks later, I present my HST quilt. Yes! Another finish, more stash utilization. 36" x 36." When I asked AppleJack about my latest accomplishment, he smiled and said, "it's beautiful, such a lot of work, wonder how long it would have taken you to make a full size quilt."
