Today I made 142 HSTs (Half-Square Triangles) the old fashioned way.

That's right.  By drawing a line corner to corner and stitching 1/4" on either side.  Yes, I know there are HST papers for that.  And normally I would have used them.  But, I am traveling and I do not have any with me.  And, they needed to be 2 and 3/4" square.  Yes I did square up all 142 of them.  Can you say, tired shoulders and back?

Have a good week and

Quilt happy,

I always do my HST that way, so I can feel your pain.
