And this is why I'm not a fan of HSTs. Even when they look really really spectacular, there's a bajillion trimmings.
And then I had to arrange the teeny-tiny HSTs into the pattern, which is really just a 4x4 block in a specific layout, which then gets rotated through 90 degrees to form the pattern.
It's pretty clever, right?
Of course, then I have to go and add borders.
Straight line quilting, following the pattern was all I could manage. Alas, I took the HandiQuilter Blessington Academy course the weekend after I quilted this, otherwise it would have been freemotion quilting and much more impressive.
Still I suppose the design holds up pretty well!
