NYE Presewing Step Done and a Look at the Hexagon Hand Sewn Quilt

I worked on this hexagon hand sewn (paper pieced) quilt at my mom and stepdad's house on Christmas Day. We watched several movies and I relaxingly sewed. It was fun...I will make it a little bigger and add some ends, but it will be a mini type quilt.
I worked for several days, several hours at a time to get all of the NYE Mystery quilt half square triangles sewn, ironed, then worst of all trimmed to size. Kathy is trimming her own (colors in picture are hers) and she is not quite done. I may have to help out with them tomorrow, but I am really tired of hsts! I think next time I am going to try triangles on a roll type thing that I just got from Becky!
Amy at http://skattebo-skattebo.blogspot.com/ is planning a fun BOM for 2010 with several options and I think I am joining in...that may make me in with four BOM's! Think 2010 is the year of the Block of the Month for me! I need to compare all my options and really decide which ones I want to do, but I like the idea of sewing along with Amy! Come join us!

I didn't do any trimming and found that using that ruler really made my HST's fairly accurate. We'll see how the blocks come together though!!
