    Another question on triangles

    Hi, I posted a few days ago about needing an idea on what to do with a bag of triangles that my volunteer group received as a donation, we don't let anything go to waste, so my friend and I have matched up a light and dark triangle and have sewed them together (no 2 triangles are of the same color or design)
    we are in the process of squaring them off. Any suggestions on what to make with these?
    Thanks
    NormaBeth

    How about the hour glass block? Jenny Dolan of MSQC did a tute on it in the past week or two.

    Pinwheel blocks? If you align them right it will also show a broken dishes as a secondary block.

    I've done a "Broken Dishes" quilt and it is really pretty and interesting.

    I have seen many questions about HST on the board. I finally found a book I have really enjoyed. The book is Barbara Johannah's "Crystal Piecing". I made a flannel quilt sampler oversized king-size for our bed with blocks and ideas from her. I think the book is out of print, but if you can find it, I think it has great ideas.

    Look at http://www.quilterscache.com and http://quiltville.com for ideas. The latter is Bonnie Hunter's web site. She does mostly scrap quilts, so there you can see how a scrap quilt will look.

    For some patterns, you may need to add some squares of fabric to the half-square triangles.
