Do you quilt when you are stressed? I do. But I don’t want a complicated project to sew. While waiting for news last week about my sweet father in law, I grabbed these HST blocks and started sewing them together.
No design wall was used. I just grabbed pairs and put them through the machine. Then I put the pairs through.
Soon I had ten rows of 8 HSTs. I pressed the seams all the same way and then flipped every other row.
I had a piece of leftover poly batting that was the right size so I threw this on the frame. Three rows of this panto and the quilting was done.
I found enough binding left from another project to finish this.
And this is exactly why I don’t mind having some bits and pieces laying around my sewing room. In no time at all, I had a baby quilt nearly finished and it was a wonderful stress reliever to boot.
BTW, thanks again for your kind comments. Also, thank you for the batting suggestions! I’m going to try Quilter’s Dream next.
Have a great day!
