Depression But Not


I finished up the last four 16 inch Depression Blocks I needed...


...to complete a flimsy 80 x 80 - 25 blocks consisting of 16 - 4.5 inch HSTs.
That's 400 scrappy HSTs! 


I finished a flimsy and it's Friday so going over to Finish it Up Friday at Crazy Mom Quilts. 

And soon I think this WIP will soon be gone  so heading on over to link up with
 WIPs Be Gone at A Quilting Readers Garden. 

And, as someone suggested in comments...linking up to:
Oh, Scrap (at Quilting is More Fun than Housework) 

And finally, to completely finish this up  with some quilting and binding will be my
  February goal for A Lovely Year of Finishes.

Love scrappy quilts, and yours is so bright and happy! You should link up on Sunday with Cynthia for Oh Scrap! at Quilting is More Fun than Housework! 1/2 square triangles are so versatile, aren't they? Love the name of your blog. :-)

Double WHOOP! That's gorgeous!

Ramona said...

I say Whoop Whoop! Great quilt!! It can almost be an "I spy" quilt. I see stars, flags, peace signs, suns, sheep, leaves, birdcages.... :)

I love the depression block. I have several made, but never made enough to put together into a quilt. I may have to remedy that after seeing your beauty.

I love depression blocks, and yours are not at all depressing. ;) In fact, it makes me want to find my UFO and finish it too.

Truly spectacular!

I came from WIPs Be Gone - thanks for not having an embedded comment box. If you did, I couldn't tell you what a fabulous finish that is! I love it. I'm a scrappy quilter and I haven't made this one. I have some extra HST from some project or other. I will have to make more!

I, too, love all the things that can be done with HSTs! This one is great! I'm putting it on my list! Thanks for the inspiration!

Claire said...

That is one of my favorite scrap patterns! And yours is looking good. 400 HSTs sounds daunting, but I plan to make this pattern someday. My main delay is waiting till I have enough of the light scraps. For some reason medium and dark pile up faster.

Tanya Quilts in CO said...

What a gorgeous scrappy quilt! I like the setting and blocks I might have to add it to my inspiration page. Thank you for sharing!
