What if I made a mistake? What if I made those initial cuts wrong? Thankfully I did not and so I then moved forward with chain piecing. 1,000 HST's later (ok not really 1,000 but it sure seems like it) I had two piles ready to be squared up.
I've never worked on so many half square triangles (HST's) before so it's taking me a while to square them up. I'll work on a pile and then move on to another chore and then come back to squaring up again. How do you get through a huge pile of HST's that need to be squared up?
By Saturday morning I was ready to sew up the first block and while still wanting to do a perfect job, kept myself moving forward as I couldn't wait to see how the plan that was given to me transferred into reality. So here is the first block:
Super happy with #1 although I wish that the lower left corner came together better but hey, I'm human and I know that she will appreciate it. Plus in a sea of 38 or so blocks, hopefully it won't show up too much.
Now for the Cream Cheese Wontons ~ Thursday night while making dinner consisting of Chicken Teriyaki, Steamed Broccoli, Sushi Rice and Cream Cheese Wontons I realized that the wonton wrappers were just about the same size as the HST's. Too funny eh? Instant blog title inspiration.

Here's a little history of how I make mine -

|Fry them up in hot oil for about 10 seconds|
|So tasty and savory!|
