I found a station on Pandora that had me just bouncing with energy. It’s called “Scorpions Radio” and is pretty much all 80′s arena rock, the same stuff I listened to in high school. I heard songs I haven’t heard in YEARS! So I cranked it up, much to the dismay of my teenager, and went on a chain-piecing rampage.
I was feeling pretty good about my progress until I took a break and counted up how many HSTs* I would need for a quilt that would measure about 90″ square. I need another 80 blocks, and there are 16 squares in each block. So, that means I need to sew together another 2,560 triangles.
Maybe this is why I like making miniature quilts so much – instant gratification!
p.s. HST = half square triangles. Two triangles are sewn together to form a square.
