Loads of HSTs later, I finally have a finished block. I've saved the pieces of fabric that we quilters that cut off the backsides of other pieces to remove bulk. Some of them I sewed together and others I wish I had since it took a long time to sew, iron, trim and sort them. I've been searching for different patterns for weeks and finally came up with this one which I absolutely love! It's not as difficult as I thought it might be and I don't think that the next blocks will take as much time. All together, I think I spent over 12 hours just to produce this one block. Of course, now I have all the HSTs ready to go, so it should be a breeze. Yeah right!
