    Very pretty! I would like to try something like this to get rid of my scraps, but probably wouldn't have enough that looked nice together. Did you do much planning for your color choices?

    I counted for you
    CENTER:
    16 HSTs per block
    9 rows of 7 blocks = 63 blocks in center
    63 X 16 = 1008 HSTs in center
    BORDERS
    4 HSTs per block
    bottom and top: 17 blocks X 2 = 34 blocks X 4 = 136 HSTs
    each side: 18 blocks X 2 = 36 X 4 = 144 HSTs

    Total = 1008 + 136 + 144 + 1288 HSTs!!!!!!!!!!!

    No - just obsessive-compulsive! I was curious after she said she stopped counting.

    Jill,
    I love your quilt, when we talked about the HST quilt in chat I didn't realize the pattern I was thinking something like a saw tooth, this is fantastic, I love it.
    I was considering the broken dish (I think that is what you have around the border right? or is it an hourglass?) for the next border on the round robin quilt I just received. What do you think?
    Brenda Henning is an Alaskan quilter, unfortunately I was active in the guild a few years ago when they brought her to my area for a workshop. She has a book out with the Hunter Star that I am determined to do one of these years.
