I had some questions about the HST blocks. This will become a version of my Triangle Scrap Quilt from my website. These are 4 inch finished triangles so they’re larger than the 3 inch ones used in the other quilt but other than that pretty much the same … I just pulled a bunch of scraps from the bins and cut half square triangles with my Accuquilt GO. I’ve started to sew the rows together vertically – that way I can press the final seam in the blocks all in one direction after I sew the row – but I didn’t get very far before I had to stop. We had a new mattress delivered and I had to get things set up for our company this weekend. Adam and his family will get here tonight and Chris will be here in the morning.
I wonder if we’ll have any Happy Hour visitors tonight? We were sitting on the porch yesterday and this deer just walked through the back yard and sat down – she stayed 45 minutes to an hour, just sitting there watching us watch her! I want to get a wildlife camera or even two back there. I think it will be fun to have some videos of our visitors.
Love the quilt!
You have much nicer visitors that we do in our backyard. Yesterday it was a woodchuck for breakfast and lunch. This morning it was a large skunk.
Take care and have a great weekend, Kathy

That is a terrific layout with great colors. Our deer visitors haven’t been hanging out lately – just passing through. Enjoy your family this weekend.
I’m so glad you’re getting settled in so quickly Mary. It’s a lovely house.
Really nice quilt. Your granddaughters will love your backyard guests.
Love the deer! This place seems to suit you in lots of ways. Nice place for you and Keith to wind down at the end of the day seems to be the high point today.
I just want to thank you for giving me such a bright spot in my day. You inspire me to get busy and quit wasting time. Right now I am making masks. All are donations. My way to give back or pay it forward.
I’m loving your triangle quilt! I love the view from your porch ❤ If that was my house I probably wouldn’t get much done because I’d be sitting on the porch all the time. Enjoy your visit with family this weekend and getting your new sewing room stocked with supplies!
I like the quilt a lot. It looks to be a good size. The deer looks so content just sitting there. She apparently feels safe. I get deer in my back yard once in a while, but usually it’s hunting season and they are looking for a safe place. Pretty animal! Have fun with your company!! Take Care!!
Those blocks are going to make a lovely quilt top, Mary!!
This will be a spectacular quilt!
