Allietare Step 1

I am working away at a relaxed pace on step 1 of Allietare. I am more than half finished today and am sure I will be ready for the posting of step 2 on Friday. Instead of doing all the cutting, then all the sewing, then all the ironing, then all the trimming,  I am doing a little bit of each step every time I sit down to sew. 

Here are some of my strips ready for cutting. I am noticing that a few of my "grey" fabrics look more blue in real life, but I'm going to go ahead and use them up anyway. I am getting 14 or 15 HSTs per half strip using the Easy Angle Ruler, which I love!
How are your HSTs coming along?

Done this week and waiting for the next clue! These clues are going to get harder and harder to do as it gets nearer to Christmas!

I do them exactly the same way, cut a few, sew a few press a few, trim a few.....I just have to trim my last batch, making something roughly 2/3 size, since I don't need another big bed quilt.

I resisted as much as I can, but finally decided to join in and make 50% of the original quilt size. Let's have fun! My HTS are done.

Slow and steady wins the race--lol! So far, I've resisted joining the sew along, but I am collecting the steps just in case!
