New Long Term Project - Pictures!

Yesterday, I showed you the pile of blue squares that will become HST units.  Today, I can confirm that the drawing of diagonal lines has started.  Woo Hoo - the project is off and running!  Not very exciting picture-wise, so instead I'm going to share what those HSTs may become.


Remember, this is meant to be a long term project because I'll need like eleventy thousand HSTs for this quilt.

Which quilt? 

Wouldn't you like to know?  

Okay, okay... something like this:

Or, in color:

Or, maybe, a variation like this: 
Will I be able to make it totally random, or will my obsessive need for color planning take over once the HSTs are all done?
Only time will tell!!

A long, long time... these are going to take awhile to make. Stick around, won't you?


  1. I will stick around, because I can't wait to see what you do! My vote is for random! Free yourself while chain piecing and just pick up and put through the machine!! LOL

  2. I can't wait to see what you choose. I did a Christmas fabric ocean a number of years ago. I took it apart 3 times. Took me about four years to finish it. And I still did something wrong. I will do another in blue. One of these years.
