Hickory Hills - By Jo Morton

Well, last year - October, I saw the new book Coming Home by Jo and I fell in love with the Hickory Hill pattern that was in there....  While at club, Heather thought this would be a great quilt for club, so along with a few other gals, we started building this quilt...  Well I really did not think that I could do it just because of all the HST that it has - all shoflys 3.5 x 3.5 so they are small.  Well I decided that I was going to do this as I love Shoflys...  So I started on my adventure, well I had to stop because I was getting really addicted and focusing all my time on this and nothing else...When I decided to pick it back up I had a lot sewn, but not presses as it requires to press open...  So last night I decided I should figure out how many I have and how many more I need to make to get the top altogether...  Well it turned out that I had 50 light and 50 dark, and you need 85 of each... Well this morning I was off making 35 more of each to get the top done...  Well in the processes, my back went and I had to call my hubby in from feeding to get me up from the floor.... "I FALLEN AND I CAN'T GET UP" man did I feel old and I thought I should totally have one of those medical alert buttons, but I had my son who got me the phone... Well I spent the rest of the day on the couch and now I feel better....Well I have trimmed all HST and ready to get all the blocks done ready to put together...
Well also I would like to let you know that if you are getting quilting done by someone and not you... you should sew a little around the whole quilt so it does not stretch the HST and more there what has been done..Do you like how I wrapped them light are in the Light Blue and the dark are in the Dark Blue... I really can't wait for this to be done and quilt as this is I think going to be my fav......
