What Do 896 HSTs Look Like?



I've finally finished my Depression Blocks Quilt Top. 56-  12 inch blocks consisting of a total of 896 HSTs arranged 7x8 to equal a quilt top 84x96.  It's too wet and cold to hang it on the clothesline to show off the monstrosity in totality. I'm glad to have this finally assembled. It's been a UFO far too long. 

And I guess a finished flimsy qualifies for Finish it Up Friday at Crazy Mom Quilts. 

And, since I hope to get this quilted, bound and completely finished  by month end I'm setting this as my May goal for a Lovely Year of Finishes.  (See button on sidebar for more information on how to join in the fun).
