The next step was making the HSTs. I set aside some of the squares for a later project and got busy. I used the traditional HST method. Today, I spent my time trueing up the HSTs to 8 inch squares. When I first started quilting I tended to skip this step. Older and wiser, maybe, I usually always true up, now a days.
These steps have taken up four days, of "quilting time", and tomorrow I'll be on to the next steps - (Lay the half square triangles right sides together- lights and darks are opposite each other. Cut them into 4– 2" strips- make sure you are cutting the correct direction! Re-arrange the order of the 4 strips so they will make a delectable mountain and stitch them together.) I think this step could take a couple of days. This is the block tutorial I'm using, if you're interested.
I soon hope to show you a Delectable Mountain Block, or two.
May your bobbins always be full,
