I've got the HST Blues

 Seven hundred sixty eight one and three quarters inch half square triangles--I think my eyes are crossing!

I started this quilt in June 2013.  It began innocently as a wall hanging.  One of my goals is to reduce my fabric stash and since there was lots of red white and blue fabric I kept stitching half square triangles and the quilt kept growing.  

Work on the quilt stopped when weeds in Next Year needed to be pulled, or my schedule did not include quilting time or I just grew weary of making half square triangles!

On Memorial Day I had planned to work outside in Next Year--Mother Nature had other plans aka rain.  With the red white and blue half square triangle flimsy approaching its one year birthday, it seemed like perfect quilting time.  

Now just need to add the borders and off to the long arm quilter she goes.
