I was so impressed with the log cabin layouts a member posted that I thought some of you might have some ideas or know of a site where I could see layouts for Half square triangles. I have about 100 of them all with one half being white. Any ideas?
Thank you in advance!

Bonnie Hunter has lots of ideas too. (See next link) Click on the quilt names on your right-hand side for examples.

This is one thing I love about EQ. When I made a HST pillow for my MIL I plugged in the blocks and clicked the randomizer thing and it showed all different layouts. I finally picked a really simple one but it was fun seeing all the different ones. Here's the pillow I made:

That pillow is beautiful. I didn't realize EQ could do that. Christmas is coming! That would be a great idea for my husband to get me. He really supports my quilting but isn't sure what to get sometes. He once bought me a class for a string quilt which I know was about 35.00. I just couldn't tell him that the materials set me back over 200. (fabric is more expensive here in Canada.) At least EQ wouldn't cost me money!

HST layout will work with some of the log cabin layouts, ex: barn raising layout for one.
