    I just finished this one! It was a lot of fun to work on this one, for all the fabrics were stash except for one. (I bought the setting triangle fabric because I felt it needed at least one fabric with BOTH red and aqua to sort of tie it together.)

    It started out with leftover half square triangles from a previous project. My well-meaning quilting friend was aghast that I would save the triangle pieces while she would just throw them out. I can't wait to show her this finished project!

    The 'just throw them out' leftover triangles.

    After sewing them together, I played with a block layout and decided on this one.

    I love these colors together and have the fabrics bought for one myself.

    I really love what you have made with yours. Very nice work. A real stunner.
