    I have a lot of half square triangles(HSTs) . They are different colors,different sizes. I'd like to use them in a quilt. Does anyone have ideas on the kind of quilt that would use a lot of various colors and sizes of HSTs? Thanks.

    My Mom was just asking about the same thing. I went on the internet and made drawings of all the cute ones that I liked and thought that she might. They are all scrap quilt patterns, squares and hst's. They are all from www.quiltblocklibrary.com. Is it alright to scan them and put them on here?

    It would be better to post a link to the patterns, I think.
    I like to put HSTs all out on the coffee table & then just play around with them, twisting 'em this way & that, until I hit on something I like! :D

    depending on the size of the HST's, Jacob's Ladder would be a great way to use them.
