More HST for Quilt Along

Another update on the NHMQG HST Quilt Along. As of now I am half way done with 15 blocks completed. It's never been a secret that I despise squaring half square triangles, so I am not sure why I agreed to this quilt. Although these are not my typical colors I am loving them more and more. 

Before this picture I was thinking these blocks don't need sashing. After seeing all them all laid out, they definitely need sashing! Guess I will be changing my plans.

  1. Squaring HSTs is soooo time consuming, but so worth the extra effort. Your blocks look amazing! I think the colors together are fantastic and this is going to be such a calm quilt - one you will want to cuddle under as soon as you see it. So pretty!

  2. I'm a little wary of triangles too and I don't have half your skill so I can understand the reluctance but it is totally worth it! Those blocks are gorgeous- even if they really will need sashing!

  3. You need to get June Tailor's half square ruler for squaring up HSTs. It makes it so much easier and bearable.

  4. Squaring HSTs can definitely be a pain! Your blocks are looking great, and congratulations on getting halfway done. :)
