    There are a bunch of 1/2 square triangle squares and then full squares that will all be going into one quilt. Don't know how big it will be cause I haven't taken the time to count out the number of squares I have. It probably won't be any bigger than a lap quilt.

    This has been sitting around for months now. I got tired of all those little triangle guys.... LOL So I figured I would just make the quilt with these and the solid squares and see how it turns out.

    How fun henry! All of the colors are so pretty and your HST's blocks are coming together with such a nice quarter inch seam allowance. Nice job!

    I work on so many "planned" quilts, that doing one like this seems so inviting. I have been saving scraps for a long time to be able to do a scrappy.

    They are all fun to do but these are even more fun to me.

    Once I fell into a rhythm I forgot all about the little pieces and started just seeing the bigger blocks. :)

    Thanks!
    I just paid attention and noticed you are in France. It reminded me of this pen pal I have in France, down in Romagne, that I have been talking to since high school. :)
