I have about 280 HSTs made, more than enough to finish off my flying geese components with a few extras for colour choice as I make them. I rank high on my list of most annoying occurrences in quilting - the getting to the end of a long line of scrappy chain piecing only to discover that the last half dozen units being sewn together are all the same fabric. Unless interrupted by something more exciting, I will be sewing flying geese this evening. I had intended to get these done in a more gradual approach (like, say, over a few days), rather than with the single-minded obsessive maniacal intensity I had today, but once I got started I couldn't seem to stop. (That may have something to do with the housework chores I had assigned myself today.)
The one good thing about sewing triangles cut on the bias for these HSTs, is that they are almost perfectly sized from using my Easy Angle ruler. So I am going to try sewing these together without the added labour of trimming off a thread or two from each one to make them absolutely perfect. I figure I can always square them up as four-patches if I have to. Squaring and trimming 62 is a whole lot more preferable to squaring and trimming 280.
I feel like such a rebel... a rebel who has a very grubby apartment but 280 new HSTs to play with.
