I have always said, I look at a pattern and if I see anything that says 200 of something, I put that pattern down! So here I am, doing 280 of something!
And in all my quilting glory, you know I have to mess something up. And the 280 is no exception!
Although I have to say it was written in such a way that one could easily misread it. And that is what I did. Bonnie makes an assumption that you are using the EasyAngle Ruler and just casually mentions -- oh, yeah, if you are not using the Easy Angle, do it some other way.
I had a lot of strips that were 2 1/2 inches and that is what I used...in a way I thought the Easy Angle worked. Obviously not.
So now I have 280 of the 2 inch blocks......so my quilt will be a bit smaller. Not a problem, I like them a bit smaller than 89 x 89 anyway.
This is what 200 HSTs look like. And I am going to work on the other 80 to get them done. We also have to make a Broken Dishes block .... actually we need to make 100 Broken Dishes Blocks.
So let me get to work.
