My next project to work on at the retreat was making a back for the Stitch Happens
quilt. I brought along all the leftovers and some Tula Pink fabrics as well as a nice purple solid. I had a bunch of HST's left over from making all the blocks, so I trimmed them down to two sizes, 1.75" and 1.5".
I pieced all the teeny scraps together with the purple solid into columns, surrounding them with the Tula Pink prints.
I had some pretty cute scraps left, so I'm glad I took this time to use them up on the same project they came from.
Those little HST's really ended up looking cute.
I mean, c'mon look at those!
This was a whole lot of pressing and trimming and it's still not put together and read to use.
I wanted to put them up on my design wall and arrange them in the best way and there really wasn't a way to do that. So that's the final step, and then I'll be ready to do some quilt sandwiching.
the pieces look really great and I love those lines of HSTs!
I'm glad I didn't throw them out, they were worth the bit of work to get them into the back.
