A Promise Made, A Promise Kept

When I was working on my Swoon quilt, I kept all those little HSTs as I am sure most of us did. I promised myself I would go back later and make something out of them. How hard could that be? They were all cut after all, just needed sewing together. HA!

So, they sat...for awhile. Then I sewed a few together.  Then they sat...for months. Then I sewed a few together. Then they sat...Ok, enough sitting. I pulled them out this morning and finished sewing and pressing.  Then, I started playing on the design wall...

Chain piecing is the fastest way to go, but there were a lot of these little guys.

Here they are, all pressed and stacked.  There are 140 of them. I think I may have lost a couple. A couple of the stacks have odd numbers.

 So, what do you think? This arrangement?
 Or this one...
 Some pinwheels maybe?
 How about this...wait, I see a problem here.
There, that's better.  What about this one?  So this is my latest dilemma with these. Leave me a comment and let me know what you think. I would love to finish this. I will let you know when I do.
Have a great week!


  1. ooh, I love the 5th picture from the top.

  2. I like the 2nd one and the last one best -- these are great and I love making leftover quilts as my hubby calls them.

  3. I particularly like the one where all of the points are facing up (I guess that's the 2nd arrangement), and the pin wheels are great too! It's great that you are doing something with these. Mine came in handy last year when I used them for one of my Schnibbles of the month quilts! It's like getting a free quilt!

  4. First or second arrangement for me - TOTALLY love triangles and all the possibilities! Have fun choosing!!

  5. I like number 1 & 3 the best -- either way it is going to be a fabulous quilt!

  6. I love bonus HST's and I love your last arrangement!!
