As you might be able to see in the photo above, I’m using a piecing thread that matches the background Kona Purple. Chain piecing the HSTs and cutting them to be ready to press went quickly.
I did all of the chain piecing and pressing in one evening, and then set them aside to trim to their finial size another day.
I treated myself to a new blade on my OLFA rotary cutter at the beginning of the year, so getting the HSTs trimmed went smoothly and quickly once I moved finishing up the HSTs to the top of my priority list.
The rainbow of prints makes me smile every time I work on this project. And I couldn’t resist getting a photo of my #FriendlyFabricMonster with all of the HST trimmings.
Up next, we will be working on piecing our blocks. I’m pretty sure that means it’s time to clear off my design wall and figure out how I want the full quilt to look. I’m looking forward to getting to play with a rainbow colorwash progression!
