New Project, A Handy Tip and a Blog Hop Update

As I hate to be behind or late with anything,  I have started on my November Island batik project. I am making a blue and yellow quilt using the SunnySide Up collection along with some of the basics and foundations fabrics. I have made a lot of half square triangle blocks.  The stack below is forty of them.

I made these using Triangles on a Roll. When you are making lots of the same unit this is really fast.
Here is my handy tip: When I am working on a project and making pieces to put into blocks later, I use these cheap inexpensive plastic envelopes from the Dollar store.
It keeps all of my pieces together so they don't get lost in the clutter.  They will hold a lot more than you realize.  This one has 96 half square triangle blocks as well as 48 border sections.

The Blog Hop:
Here is Island Batik blog hop schedule for this week . A different Island Batik Spring 2019 collection is being featured each day. You should visit my fellow Ambassador’s blog hop stops every day to see what beauties have been created with this wonderful fabric.

Quilting Finished on This One

The string quilt is quilted.  Now it just needs trimming and binding.
I started stippling on this quilt but I got bored with it.  So I decided to use the "Alien Fingers" pattern that I learned from Leah Day.  Actually this is more "Gene's Variation of Alien Fingers" - My aliens are stranger than Leah's  aliens.  LOL
The back shows the texture better. 
The color isn't true in the above photo, but it shows the texture better than any other picture I took.

This one is more true to color


Also, I have  been making some HSTs using Triangles on a Roll. 

I love that I made twenty of these and all the waste is in the photo below.
Now that is thrifty!
