and now we're on to constructing the pieced blocks, beginning with these stacks of 5-1/2 inch sub-units involving what seems a never-ending number of HSTs.
All of which will eventually (hopefully this weekend) build the central medallion of this top:

My bonus points? These piles of HST units created with the cut-offs from all the sew-and-flip portions of the 5-1/2 inch units!
This top will end up providing me with several hundred of these bonus HST's that will trim to two inches and finish at 1-1/2 inches. There are 200 so far and I haven't even begun to put the borders together. Off-hand, I'm thinking the border units will yield another 120-150. Oh, the possibilities!
