Ready For Quilting

I finished piecing the Exploding Star wallhanging today....all 1752 pieces..and it's still only 36" X 36".  Hope to get it quilted tomorrow.  I don't want to work with HST's again for at least a few days.

Holy moly, that's beautiful! 1" finished squares?!? You must have gone through some starch for this project. That's the only way I could sew something that tiny and have any chance of getting seams to match up! Great job, you must be sew proud!

FABULOUS job!
The size & number of the HST make me cringe but you pulled them off with your usual skill.

Looking GOOD!

Congratulations on getting the exploding star top done. You are faster than my friend who has been working on hers for a long, long time. So long I forget how many years. Am looking forward to seeing it quilted.
