to square up my HST's. And did I guess 240 of them???? Well, I'm obviously math challenged! There were 8 flying geese in each swoon block. That's SIXTEEN HST's from each block. 16x27=432. Hello BRAIN, are you still working???? So I have 475 HST's. That's including some I already had from other quilts, and some that I "goofed" in thw Swoon and remade a couple of flying geese, so total is 475 HSTs. And I just squared each and everyone of those boogers up. Have I ever mentioned how much I HATE HATE HATE squaring up blocks? But they are done. And now I can plan my Zig Zag quilt. I'm probably going to have sore arms tomorrow, though I did put a new blade into the rotary cutter when I started, but I think I've killed it already. I know I've pretty much killed my cutting mat, it's got chunks out of it now.
There they are, all 475 of those arm killers!
And here's a few more I have to iron open and then square up and that will probably make 500 HSTs.
And if I need more, here's some squares I found in my scraps that I can turn into HSTs just by adding some white fabric!
Now, I just have to figure out how to put this thing together, scrappy, or do I put colors and specific fabrics together? Or rainbow it down the quilt, or ....... well, I'll have to put my design wall up and see what works best for me!
