A new project - Nabby's Dowry

I blame it on Kathy over at Kathy's Quilts. She started two new sew-alongs this month and I've been itching to get home and start them. I started one today over at heartspunquilts called Nabby's Dowry. and I am all caught up! This will be a little wall hanging and I decided to use up a bunch of leftover hst's that have been sitting in a bag in the scrap bin. I made a lot of bonus triangles while I was making a Star Struck quilt
Star Struck - pattern from Quiltville.com
a couple of years ago and this is my pile of HST's.

They just need to be ironed and trimmed down to the 2 inch unfinished size. I was able to quickly press some and trim them up and soon had the first three blocks for this sew along.

I know you have a pile of HST's hanging around somewhere... why not join in?
Today I am hooking up with Angie over at Quilting on the Crescent. She is having a special link up to celebrate St. Ann - the patron saint of seamstresses and a bonus giveaway for her 200th post! Head on over and see what is happening around the world. My daughter's middle name is Ann - hopefully she'll grow up to love a sewing machine just like her Mom!

  2. I hope your daughter is inspired to become a sewist one day! Using needle and thread is such wonderful therapy. Thanks for the link to Nabby's Dowry; I think I will have to resist this project, but I really like Pam's blog and will enjoy following her.

  3. I only wish I had a pile of HSTs. Maybe I need to make Star Struck (I love it!) so I can get started on creating a pile of HSTs. ;-)
