    Playing with HST!!!!

    I had lots of HSTs (half square triangles!) in my 30s fabric box. I had seen a similar quilt on Pinterest so had a play!! I am pleased with the result!!! I will back and bind in the green gingham fabric and that's another baby quilt done!! Ooooops!!! Picture loaded sideways!!.just spotted one square wrong way round!!!! Oh....sugar!!!!

    Sometimes you just have to sit in a chair and jog in order to get anywhere.

    That's so pretty! It looks so simple but I know it took lot of work. I want to try to make one soon. Thanks for sharing!
    Make it a scrappy happy day!

    I really like the colors - and have looked and looked but can't find the error.
    A fabric stash is always missing that one fabric needed to finish the quilt on which you're working.

    I love 30's fabric & your quilt design. Also like the green border.

    It looks great! If the boo boo bothers you than fixed it but it isn't really noticeable.

    Ok I see the error? but I don't see how to keep the swirl moving other wise. Adding the idea to my Pinterest.

    I think it looks great and I really had to study it to find the mistake! That pinwheel in the middle really adds to the pattern!

    Very fresh and clean looking.

    Nothing like a picture to help make it easier to spot an anomaly!

    I don't believe there is a mistake , the one that catches my eye could not go any other way to make it mesh, it's just where one "trail" ends!
