Description

First time joining a QAL - I have a collection of half square triangle units that I create when sewing between patches so this seemed a great fit.  My units finish 2.5 inches making my blocks 10" therefore I will likely choose to make 35 blocks.
 
1 - 24 done Jan 2013 - planning to complete blocks by end of March.  Keep auditioning fabrics for the sashing but am not in love with anything yet.
 
April 14 -Shouldn't have set the bar so high - finally got around to finishing through block 28.  I think that I will make 7 more so that I can set it 5 x 7 for a twin size quilt.

Your quilt shows me why I love HSTs so much! So many great layouts. It's gorgeous~

I love HST's. The versatility of this one little square can make unending patterns. This is beautiful!

I love the variety and all of the colors. I need to work with HSTs more... ;)

I have a new profound respect for anyone who can make this many HST's and make them so precisely! Beautiful!

Terryt1955 Thanks -I make them each time I sew and I make them oversize so that I can trim to perfect size as I find I always manage to press them out of shape no matter how careful I am. My challenge now is going to be picking the right sashing color.

How did you do the black and blue sashing? Try a turquoise!

Sbbquilter

Thanks for the suggestion. The other times I pinned a fabric on the design wall and then placed the blocks. I have in mind to try the turquoise and maybe a bright green - thought black was the answer but then the blue looked better than I anticipated.
