Question 233 half square triangles

Last week I made fying geese from two fabrics only. Instead of throwing away the section you cut off I sewed another diagonal seam across them before cutting off. Want not, waste not. Now I have 233 small half square triangles, they measure 2 1/2 unfinished. Been racking my little brain for a design to use them for. Any suggestions?

I am following this as I have 200 HST that were bonus triangles when I made the Labyrinth Walk pattern.

Use up those HST's quilters and have fun!

Hourglass blocks are fun to do, too - here is a quilt I made using "cast-off" HSTs as a starting point: https://www.quiltingboard.com/showth...94#post8515494
