...but wouldn't it be nice if you could?
Anyway, cutting, cutting and more cutting. That's what was on my agenda for today. I've finished up the blocks for the Ships and Stars and Pirate Arrghs quilt that i've been working on, so while trying to decide if i want to sash in white or yellow i thought i'd get some squaring up done on the Constellations HST's i have on the go.
I love the Constellations line by Lizzy House and as soon as i saw it i knew i wanted to make new quilts for my two little guys.
They share a room so i'm using all the same prints, 29 in all, but for Sammy's quilt i'm using Kona Steel for the grey and Max is getting Kona Iron.
All of Max's 238 HST's have been sewn, cut and pressed and now i'm working on squaring up. Each one unfinished is four inches so i'm thinking i may need to either make more or border the quilt to get it up to the size that i want. We'll see once i get to the layout stage of the process what i feel like doing.
...i'm thinking by the time i finish with Sammy's i'll probably just want a break from HST's and end up bordering them both.
So on the to do list for tomorrow...
...sew up Sammy's HST's, then cut them up, press them, square up...wash rinse repeat...
238 of the most repetitive high fives ever!!
I'm linking up over at Freshly Pieced for WIP Wednesday... pop over and take a look around, you won't regret it.
I leave you with three of my pirate blocks for my Ships and Stars and Pirate Arrghs quilt that hopefully i will have made a decision on and be able to sash tomorrow as well.
