Last week, I told you I've been making more Half Square Triangles for the Sunshine in Winter blocks. The picture is blocks I made in previous batches. I don't have the pattern in front of me, but I think what you see here is the whole quilt, except that each block is bigger because it is made with a bunch of blocks.
I got the bright idea that if I cut the squares the right size, I wouldn't have to trim the HSTs when they were made. I was close, but I still wound up having to trim them. Either I cut a fraction of an inch too big or I sewed them with too small a scant quarter inch. For now, I am still working on trimming this batch of blocks. I have plenty more batches to perfect my sewing.
Because it is white, I will probably be making a wall hanging instead of the humongous (bed) size of the original pattern. I will have to figure out how to reduce the size while maintaining the look of the quilt.
I spent my week trimming HSTs. I also bought some more white fabric to make sure I had enough for this and other quilts I have that use a white background, like the 1857 quilt and the Elephant Parade.
