    HSTs What is your favorite pattern?

    I have a lot of pre-cut HST's that I want and need to use. I have found a pattern that I like. But, I'd like to have more options. What is your favorite pattern using HSTs and if you have a picture, please post it so I can have a look. You know how a pictures says a thousand words, right? I need to pick one for a scrappy and one using just two colors. Thanks so much for your help. Here is the one I'm considering making. It is called Jewel Box.

    My Jewel Box didn't have sashing or cornerstones. Those certainly change the look. Bonnie hunter's Sunny Lanes is a controlled scrappy - need a light and another color, but I like it. For the two color and a neutral you can't beat a Carpenter Star.

    Peckish, I like your Depression block. DebraK, I like the one in the drawing.

    Sorry, can't help you with a particular pattern. I'm attracted to just about anything with HST's. After making a bunch of them today though, I keep remembering how painful they are! No matter how accurately I think I cut and sew, I still have to trim each and every side of each and every one! Geez!

    I was going to say pinwheels, then I saw Peckish's beautiful blue blocks, then I saw the one QuiltnNan asked about and I have totally changed my mine. I love the corn and beans but that's definitely above my skill level so I'm going to choose the Depression Block in blues as my favorite HST pattern. ( at this moment that is)

    Ahhh, Jan, thanks for posting that Pinterest group. I have so many lefover HST's and will now be putting them to use in small quilts/doll quilts. I save all HST's that I can via Bonnie Hunter style. Why waste them?

    Most of the patterns by Edyta Sitar of Laundry Basket Quilts are made with HST's. I recently did one from her book Friendship Triangles called Criss Cross that used them. She designs fabric for Moda as well. I love her designs. She has lots of batiks and cottons.

    The only hst I don't trim are from Triangulations software and there are sites that have some free paper piecing that you can copy for the more popular sizes. Recently I made 4,000+ hst from all the ways I knew - I just wanted them scrappy. There is also a program called - lingo something-darn, thought I knew it - it prints directly on the fabric. I love Bonnie Hunters Ocean Waves on Quiltville - gorgeous.

    Wow, that pretty much covers it. I've made that zigzag rainbow quilt - except I used a pattern that used just fat quarters. Even the binding came from the FQs. I loved the result but it was a fussy thing to do. The green and rose quilt started as pinwheels but I was tired of doing them so made this layout instead.

    I made a quilt called Galaxy of stars and scraps by Katharine Guerrier in her book Scrap Quilt Sensation. I checked the book out of my library. Instead of stars in the large open area, I did a machine embroidery design.
