As I was starting, I remembered I had a gallon sized bag full of untrimmed HSTs leftover from my Pineapple Blossom Quilt. I had used Bonnie's method of sewing that extra line on my corner squares and then having a bonus HST left when I trimmed. I decided to take them out too to press and trim. I really liked her Charlotte's Baskets quilt (minus the sashings I think) so why not at least get things started! I ended up with almost 90 HSTs and a bunch more to finish up! Not bad for a day's work! My HST's finished up at 2.5" so my blocks will end up a bit bigger than shown on her website, but I think it will turn out just lovely!
Tonight I will be basting my Tree of Life quilt. It has been a pretty satisfying day!
