The next StashBuster project is this quilt. I am using the fabric left over from the Elm Creek Quilt to make this one. Looks easy and it really is after you get your mind around all those HST's. This is another famous Red Rooster design. They have some great patterns but there instructions are terrible IMHO..... I already know that if I do this one again to cut the squares for the HST's larger so that I can trim them down to size. I might just try to remember to do that on all quilts........ They assemble so much better that way.
I will be taking my time and enjoying each step. At class last week I cut out most of the quilt. This morning I cut a little more. I have all the squares for the HST's cut and the center blocks cut. All that is left is the setting triangles and the borders.
I am slowly pressing each neutral square to a pink or green square and using the new
Mary Ellen's Best Press Spray. (I found my bottle at my local quilt shop and I could not get her website to open this morning) That adds such a lovely fragrance to the air and a little stability when I slice those blocks in half on the diagonal. I find that I take my time and enjoy touching the fabric and pinning pieces together to insure a better connection. I am focusing on this project only instead of rushing through so that I can move on to the next one.
