    Help Please! What do to with lots of 4" triangles?

    I have a lot of 4" triangles. I think I have enough to do a quilt, but I need ideas. Any help from you will be greatly appreciated.
    Thanks.

    I would also suggest pinwheels... or, you could do scrappy triangles... sew them together like you would for the pinwheels but use any color next to any color...
    I quilt for my sanity!

    Flying geese are a good use for triangles, and since they're small, use them for a mini quilt or a doll quilt for some little girl...

    There is a quilt on the cover of a recent catalog from Keepsake Quilting that is all triangles. Beautiful!

    They could be sewn together to make a square and do a four patch. I am going to post a pic of the scrappy quilt I finished last Sunday evening. I made that way with larger triangles the same color to make a square, then alternated them with the other and strips sewn together.
    Two triangles make a square, just match the colors or use different ones together.
