    What to do with leftover HST's????

    Using Bonnie Hunter's method to get bonus HST's, I now have 44 5" HST's and 30 4" HST's leftover from the making of the quilt in this picture.

    Does anybody know of any patterns that use HST's? or have any idea of what pattern to do with them? I'm thinking probably lap size...

    What about making some pillows or pillow shams with them? Or maybe a throw or baby quilt?
    Those who are piecemakers will sew seeds.

    Your quilt is beautiful. If you save enough triangles Barbs sure is pretty.

    beautiful quilts that you've made with the HST's...I'm thinking you could make some little doll quilts with the left overs or even small lap throws.

    Pinwheel quilts are cute in any size or colors.

    I have lots of triangles, several sizes, I'm thinking of making some scrappy quilts with mine.

    You can always save them until a creative lightbulb brightens your day.
