Another HST Project

I brought this charm pack with me.

I also had a charm pack of white squares. While the boys were napping the other day, I marked these for HSTs

.

I marked all the white squares and stacked them with prints. Then it was time to sew.

After stitching, I cut between the stitching lines and pressed them all to the dark. I brought my Bloc-Loc ruler and used it to trim these all to the same size.


This job really made me appreciate my die cutter! Making HSTs like this is not my idea of fun. But it is very accurate.

Time to go to the design wall!

Have a great day!

    I love HSTs but never enjoyed the trimming process. The BlocLoc was a game changer for me! Love the colors I’m seeing, and looking forward to seeing your design!

    HST’s are such a pain but I love the look. The bloc loc does make it a lot easier though!

    I love the look of HSTs but usually stay away from them because they are not fun at all. I think I will check out this BlocLoc ruler.
