    HST Ideas

    Our quilting group played a game. We passed a wrapped package around ( musical chairs), we packaged things we no longer wanted. Anyway I won . The package contained about 100 HST's (3.5inches). Any ideas on a pattern using HST's.

    Find a site that has lots of 9 patch designs and 4 patch designs. Many use HST exclusively.

    What a great swap to receive. And I agree with GrannieAnnie. You can use them in any 4 patch (or 9 patch) configuration. You can mix and match the resulting 4 patches with solid blocks.

    Lucky you! Have fun with them, you can always use them to make a bunch of table runners for gifts.

    100 HST's would be the 4 corners for 25 churn dash blocks
    A positive attitude may not solve all your problems, but it will annoy enough people to make it worth the effort :lol:

    I'm going to watch this for ideas. My church quilting group did a swap of Bright Batik half square triangles. I have about 430 of them and am the last of the bunch (6 of us) to figure out what I want to do with them. Everyone else has their tops done and one gal has already started quilting. I am so far behind....

    I have just finished the Barn Raising Quilt ( the one Jan posted). I had won some 6 inch HST'a a long time ago.My quilting group had heard me moan about them since forever. Makes me think the 3.5 inch set was rigged so I would end up with them. Now I'm determined to use them. Thinking maybe I'll trim them to 3 inches & make a Carpenter's Wheel. I'd rather cut plain 3 inch blocks than make more HST's

    Moda Bake Shop has a pattern on there right now. Looks very simple.
