Progress: Spring Breeze Quilt

 Progress is slow--at least in comparison to quite a few past quiltmaking projects.
There are soooooo many ways to make half square triangles--and most of them are just not very enjoyable.  So I'm just trying to take a few minutes here and there, between naps and chores and therapies and doctor visits and am telling myself that once it's done, it's a quilt, and that's all that matters.
So, right now I'm making green windmills from white broadcloth and some of my hand-dyed greens.
Next step will be to piece the pink print and white windmills, and then I can move on to easier piecing and larger areas and will feel I'm accomplishing more.

Sweet Teen wanted some help with one of her essays yesterday on the surprising level of stress felt by many high-achieving, affluent people.  I really hope she finds her passion and just follows it.  She says she wants to be the first Asian-American justice on the U.S. Supreme Court.  That sounds like waaay too much stress to me.--However, my brain was struggling to hang on to sentences, word order, and word choice yesterday!

Today's schedule includes another evaluation and an appointment with the rehab specialist, hopefully with the opportunity to go over some of the previous evaluations, although I know he won't have received all of them yet.

Happy quiltmaking....

This is going to be a beautiful quilt and I agree, there are lots of great ways to make HSTs. That is wonderful that your daughter has such high aspirations! Thanks for sharing.

Good luck to sweet teen in her aspirations. I'm also making HST's right now. I'm using Triangulations. It's boring, but, they are getting done.

I think it is cool to hear of a young person aiming high! Good for her.
Hang in there dear Dora, I'm hoping you'll start to feel the mend coming soon!

Definitely a spring looking quilt. HST aren't my favorite thing, either, but I have found a happy-making way for me. I show it on my blog, link on the sidebar, if you want to see if it's any different from your way. I zip these out pretty fast now.
