That’s a lot of triangles!

I finished making the HST’s for my Amish ocean waves. That’s over 900 squares. I thought my arm was going to fall off from all that rotary cutting.

 

I was anxious to see how the squares would look together in a block. So I decided to start putting squares together in a 4 patch.

I know I said I was not going to buy any fabric, but I did buy some more black fabric because I had so little.

 

 

I only managed to get two blocks pieced together. It does look pretty nice so far. I think this quilt will look very, very good on the bed in our new house. Every point is not perfect, but I am not going to do any ripping on this quilt.

 

 

Only 54 more blocks to piece before adding borders! More piecing will have to wait until tomorrow.

Now for a nice glass of white wine.

Thanks for reading. What are you up to this week?

Linking to Nina-Marie a day early. It has been crazy around here. Our house has been on the market since last Saturday and there have been 6 showings so far.

It is going to be beautiful. The showings are a positive sign. Those are all people who have been looking and haven't found the right home yet. Start packing!
