This quilt is the same two blocks over and over, so there will be quite a bit of chain piecing. I started on the half square triangles today. I matched up the 224 patterned squares with the 224 white squares and sewed all the seams. It turned out to be quite a pile!
I clipped the threads holding the long chains of HSTs together and ended up with a lovely stack of squares all ready to be cut apart, pressed, and trimmed to size. I’m hoping to get started on that tomorrow.

What a nice neat stack!! HST’s are well worth making and trimming, this will be a beautiful quilt!
What a stack! Getting through that many HSTs is an achievement.
That photo of the stack of squares is so pretty! I would find it hard to take it apart. 🙂
Isn’t it fun to chain piece so many and then all of a sudden you have so much done and you can start to see what your quilt is going to become?
I love chain piecing. I wish I could find someone to press them for me though. 😀
Just how long will I admire that second photo? Lol! I think Kate Spain has that effect…you want to take pictures all along the way, cuz each step and stack is just so darn pretty!!! I probably have more pic of my Honey Honey quilt than any other, lol!! Have fun!!
Wow, that’s a lovely stack of goodness! I need to check to see if you’ve done more since then. Your Juki looks so fresh and clean. =)
