Default HST quilts

I am very fond of HST patterns, including those that are oversized blocks. I have probably made a couple dozen of them, but most of my quilt pix went missing when I changed computers (neat birthday present). (Don't worry, I am certain they are still around, but DH helpfully transferred data for me while I was getting ready for our quilt show and all the pix went into a single file with no sub-folders. I have not sorted them out yet.) I made one 8 point star flimsy this morning. The scrappy friendship star is another I made since I got this computer.

I have taught a couple of classes in HST construction, including oversized HSTs. Many, if not all blocks work as oversized blocks for quick quilts. I particularly like using oversized blocks for larger scaled prints, both novelty prints and more traditional ones. One person in my most recent class decided to make king sized quilt of 4 wild goose chase blocks + borders. I'll try again with the first.

Life may not be the party we hoped for, but while we are here we might as well dance.

Very nice! My favorite block is the HST because there are so many ways you can position the blocks in a quilt and get a different look every time. You did a great job with yours!
