Happy 4th of July!
Hope that you find time and desire to enjoy a fireworks display today. We have friends and their three children coming over for the traditional cook out. We'll be having hamburgers, hot dogs, corn on the cob and who knows what else. We can see the fireworks display at two different locations and hear it loud from one of these two. Of course our big screen and stereo will be showing/playing one of the big celebrations...just in case getting it live isn't enough!
I have all 42 of the Hawk's Nest Blocks done. Next is to add the setting triangles. These are all cut out need to take the "nests" to the floor to figure out color placement with the triangles. (The blue you see at the top of each "nest" is painters tape, not part of the fabric.)
After the setting triangles comes the "Extreme" pieced border (the exact words from Bonnie's pattern) which is made up of 1 1/2" HST like what was used in the "nests", but a considerable amount more...438 of these. Bonnie says that you don't have to make them all at once, but hey...I'm excited...I'll be speed piecing later this afternoon like there is no tomorrow.
This Bonnie Hunter pattern is available in her Scraps & Shirttails II book. Her third book and definitely my favorite so far.
