  1. Ooh, how exciting! I'm actually getting ready to start my first project with HSTs, a baby quilt. Perfect timing!

  2. How exciting, cant wait for the tutorials!

  3. I love the look of this - HSTs are great fun!

  4. Sounds great! Haven't tried these yet so this will be a real challenge =D

  5. Oh man HSTs seriously stress me out! Maybe you guys can persuade me otherwise...

  6. I'm so excited about your HST Festival. I have a love-hate relationship wih HSTs. Sometimes they turn out the correct size, sometimes not. Even with Thangles they do not always turn out. Looking forward to finding out some tricks and I know lots of great projects and inspiration.

  7. Sounds fantastic.Can´t wait to the tutoriasl.Have fun HST!

  8. Sounds like fun. I have several HST projects that need finishing up. Perhaps this Festival will be the inspiration to do just that.
