What made matching the intersections easier is that I took the time to TRIM each and every HST to 4.5".  Tedious, sure .. but the benefits down the line are worth the time spent.

I do the same thing about trimming the HSTs.  In fact, I tend to oversize them so I won't be short, then trim to fit. It is tedious but worth it.

So I finished up a UFO:  This will be completed to make a baby gift for a coworker, whose wife is expecting her first baby! I needed a break from this project for a while, so I thought I'd organize my 1930's box, with its myriad of UFO/WIP, cut offs, etc. Oh, boy! My right tricep is hurting from all the ironing and cutting. Hey, if anyone ever tells you quilting isn't a workout, it's more than a catholic church...I iron, I sit to sew, I stand and iron, cut, iron, sit to sew, etc...and triceps and biceps get a workout too, lifting iron, pressing down with rotary cutter, etc. LOL!!! :D 

(a little joke as I grew up in Catholic school. Sorry; I couldn't help myself)

All Quilt Gifts are done and all but one shipped out.  Back to my HST projects as I am determined to empty those 2.5" and 3.5" bins.  I need some newer fabric in them.  Progress is slow, but continuing.  Love the rainy days as I can sit with my hot coffee, sew and watch the rain come down,

Life is Truly Good.

I still have swap blocks from years ago. Always so nice to be able pull out a pile of blocks and quickly put together a gift quilt.
