Using this method you can just add squares and get even more finished HSTs. For example, if you divided the length by 4 (with a 12'' Square you'd have four 3'' elements in 4 Rows) you would get: 32 !!!! HSTs! WOWOWOWOW! Isn't that the coolest Method?
Imagine, you could use a very large piece and make larger Squares and get the Elements for a whole quilt-top in only one Sewing Session! Cool, huh? I'm going to try that someday with maybe 4 solids!
Before I do, I will finish my Walk in the Woods quilt. There's only one row left to be sewn and then I'll start quilting.
Enjoy this Tutorial.
|Here are my two 7,5'' Fabric squares, right sides together.|
|Sewing along the lines is really fun!|
|This is how the sewn piece looks like. I made two and am showing the black side to get a better view of the sewing!|
|Next thing you do is cut out the squares you drew in the beginning.|
|Now you have your Sewn HST Elemts that you just cut between the Sewing lines!|
|Here you go!|
|18 HST elements in only 10 Minutes. of course the pressing takes a little longer :-)|
