    scrappy top finished

    I have thousands (well, maybe not quite though it feels like it) of 2" squares so I decided to use some of them to make HST by stitching thru the center of the two squares and cutting off half. That meant I was throwing away the little triangles. And yes, I know that is not the most efficient way to make HST's, but as I said I have MANY 2" squares already cut. Every time I tossed a bunch of the little triangles in the trash, I cringed at my wastefulness so I decided to try and make something with them. Here's what I came up with and I am kinda pleased with it.

    ​Great way to use up your triangles and a super quilt! The triangles in the undulating rows remind me of little mountains.

    You did great! I love the whole thing! It is wonderful and I really love the way you put the triangles on a curve! Are they pieced or done like prairie points?
