Moje ulubione HST / HST – best block ever!

Czy kiedykolwiek probowaliscie uszyc HST (trojkaty prostokatne na polu kwadratu)? To calkiem proste, nawet dla poczatkujacych. Prawdopodobnie dlatego ja je tak lubie. Chociaz sa rowniez inne powody: niezliczona ilosc roznych blokow jakie mozna uszyc, no i oczywiscie calkiem niezly wyglad.

Have you ever tried to make a half-square triangle (HST) block? It’s quite easy even for a beginner. That’s probably why I like it so much. Another really great thing about it that you can make a countless combinations of them. And pretty much they all look fantastic.

Wiec w oczekiwaniu na flizeline do moich Migoczacych Kol, pracuje nad dwiema rzeczami. Pierwsza rzecz jasna to wycinanie kwadratow na tlo oraz kwadratow, z ktorych pozniej wytne kola, a druga to 160 4,5 calowych HST, moj nowyprojekt (projektow nigdy za wiele – caly czas sobie powtarzam..).  Szycie HST-ow to czysta przyjemnosc, jako ze szycie idzie szybko. Pozniejsze rozcinanie i przycinanie to wspaniala szkola w precyzji. To rowniez lubie. Tkaniny sa z kolekcji Sphere (Zen Chic). Uwielbiam te zywe kolory. Tlo w granacie (Kaufman Kona Navy).

So while awaiting for interfacing for my Shimmering Circles quilt, I’m kind of busy with two things. One is endless cutting of background squares as well as squares that I will use later for circles, and second making 160 4,5″ half square triangles, my new quilt project (never too many projects I keep telling myself..). I really enjoy sewing HSTs , as the speed is decent. However later cutting and trimming is a really great accuracy training, which I actually like too. Fabric I’m  using is Sphere by Zen Chic. I love the bright colors. Kaufman Kona Navy will be the background.

Jak widac na zdjeciach jedna czwarta za mna. W tym tygodniu wiecej pewnie nia dam rady uszyc – czeka mnie dlugi weekend w Polsce. Wyjezdzamy w czwartek. Nie moge sie doczekac!

As you can see on the pictures I’m approximately one fourth of the way. And probably will not get any further this week as I’m going to Poland for the extended weekend. Departure on Thursday. Looking forward so much!

Linking up with WIP Wednesday at Freshly Pieced.
