    Here's another lot of HSTs (half-square triangles) that I had and what I did with them. This quilt is still in 2 sections waiting to be sewn together. It is about 32x40". I love it and want to make it a bit bigger. Any ideas about what I could do as a border?

    I have to give credit to Rita at Red Pepper Quilts for her inspiration and help.

    NICE! Love the way you used scrappy neutrals too... I see way too many quilts that claim to be scrappy and they have about 6 yards of the same neutral used!

    Beautiful! I will be book marking this one!

    Awesome, thanks again. I was working on the siggie block swap and have lots of HST left over. This will be so awesome, thanks again for sharing.
