864 .. What Was I Thinking!

Here are the first 8 of the 864 HSTs in the Scrappy Triangles quilt I showed you Sunday. My new scrappy quilt project. What was I thinking?!?!? 

Onward - to or toward what is ahead in space or time.

I like this quilt and have lots of scraps so onward I will go! I am using Lynn of Sew'n Wild Oaks tutorial for getting 8 HSTs at a time. This was my test to make sure I understood and could follow the instructions.  Lynn writes crystal clear pattern instructions - very easy to follow. I know so - without a doubt! However, my quirky brain "wanders" sometimes! 

The Christmas QAL & Challenge gang meets this coming Saturday and Sunday. We will be visiting Joanna of Needle, Thread, Happiness. Whether you participate in the challenge or not be sure to drop by. You will be glad you did.

I've got lots to work on this weekend. Khris of Sew Prim Khris  released the FRIENDS Swap 2013 partners.

Judy of Sewing Seeds of Friendship is mine. 
I'm very excited! I have lots of planning ahead.

I, also need to actually start my Christmas QAL. Ms Cha Cha Cat is not very good at applique, so will be no help. And, I pulled fabric for Canasta, this month's Another Year of Schnibbles. Besides, 8 barely makes a dent in864 HSTs.

One would think I would get off the Internet and get cracking! Eventually, okay!

I so love having projects!

Well, look at it this way. That is only 107 more sets of 8 to do, right? Hope it helps! It will be worth it, though.

Donna, kudos to you for taking on this challenge. That's quite a number of hst's for one quilt. Your piecing always looks perfect; hope you enjoy the process.

All those HSTs should keep you out of trouble for a while!

Looking forward to seeing you at the weekend over at Joanna's!

I see Joanne's just said what I was going to. That's a lot of triangles, but I'm sure it will be worth it in the end.
