    HSTs What is your favorite pattern?

    I have a lot of pre-cut HST's that I want and need to use. I have found a pattern that I like. But, I'd like to have more options. What is your favorite pattern using HSTs and if you have a picture, please post it so I can have a look. You know how a pictures says a thousand words, right? I need to pick one for a scrappy and one using just two colors. Thanks so much for your help. Here is the one I'm considering making. It is called Jewel Box.

    My Jewel Box didn't have sashing or cornerstones. Those certainly change the look. Bonnie hunter's Sunny Lanes is a controlled scrappy - need a light and another color, but I like it. For the two color and a neutral you can't beat a Carpenter Star.

    Peckish, I like your Depression block. DebraK, I like the one in the drawing.

    Sorry, can't help you with a particular pattern. I'm attracted to just about anything with HST's. After making a bunch of them today though, I keep remembering how painful they are! No matter how accurately I think I cut and sew, I still have to trim each and every side of each and every one! Geez!
