    I just can't throw away the corner triangles

    So.....I found this idea to use some of them.

    Nice projects for using them at that site. I don't save them anymore though. I figured out a long time ago I can cut triangle corners if I need some to use.
    I believe giving what I can will never cause me to be in need.

    Kinda cool way to use them up and you could plan to have a common half (eg white). Now to figure out how to use those HST up....

    Do you use a pineapple trim ruler when you make the blocks?

    I give mine to a friend who does wonderful things with scraps. She turns them into masterpieces. I don't have the patience.

    No, I paperpiece mine. And I should have mentioned in my original post, that the idea for using the triangles came from someone here on QB, but can't remember who

    I sewed matching ones together to make squares to use as borders for the scrappy quilts I had been making.
    Now I am throwing them away, not making those kinds of scrappies anymore.

    Anita Grossman Solomon is one of my favorite quilt instructors. She makes everything so simple. I ordered a set of her triangle rulers and they do make her technique of strip sewing them super fast.

    She shows you the strip piecing method on this video toward the end.
