Dilemma Solved! Thanks Jackie!

Check it out!  3 1/2" HSTs - Yeah! As I have said in previous posts I am participating (on my own time schedule) in a Layer Cake Quilt Along sponsored by Moose on the Porch. I had my 4 1/4" blocks all pieced with those little tabs sticking out the ends. The instructions were to then square up to 3 1/2". Okay, and how do I do that? Major dilemma! This was last night, so I went to bed!

The first blog I read this morning was Jackie, Canton Village Quilt Works. Jackie must have read my mind. Her post today was a tutorial for making HSTs. I now have 8 3 1/2" HSTs and it was so simple. Thanks Jackie!

I am starting to like my living room lamp as a design wall! Ha! Ha!

Quilting by the Bay is having a Scrap Buffet today. All you can fit into their container for $5.00. See you there should you be anywhere close to Panama City, FL.

Afterwards I am joining up with a few ladies for a quilting day. This will be my first time and I am so excited. Happy quilting to all!

I had a light bulb moment too this morning, lol. I was watching a tutorial that included trimming HST's. It was so easy, I wondered how I'd never realised before!
