Hello!  Long time, no see.  I know, no blog post, but I have been busy.  I didn't want to bore you with the "daily grind".  I have cut out all 388 of my HST pairs for Celtic Solstice and they are sew together!

I chain pieced the triangles and cut the chain into groups of 10.  I now have the joy of pressing and trimming the dog ear off of each one.  I like to do that in groups of 10 as it's a way of tricking myself.  Ten at a time isn't hard.  Thinking of all 388, that sounds hard.

I also cut out a quilt that is on my UFO list for this year.  It's the quilt kit I bought at last years Iowa Shop Hop.  My goal was to have it made before this year's Hop as I told myself I couldn't buy a kit this year if it wasn't done.  I need to get busy as the Iowa Shop Hop starts in June.

And progress was made on "Everything But The Kitchen Sink".   Two borders have been sewn on and am getting the piecing done for the third border.  See all the little pieced squares?

So it's been productive even if I haven't finished anything yet!  I was feeling bad that I haven't had a finish for this year, but soon!

I don't count things as I work on them. I count as I cut them out and then start sewing. Sounds too scary to count as you sew. I'm glad you're working on your Iowa quilt...I haven't decided what to do with the fabric, so hopefully I will get inspired after the new stuff comes out!
