    Some of you will remember that I wanted to know how to use up the hundreds of HSTs(half-square triangles) that I had.

    http://www.quiltingboard.com/t-39148-1.htm

    Here are 2 baby quilts that I did with one lot of HSTs. I used the purple as a backing on Gracie's quilt. And I must apologize for the wrinkles on the other one...I had to wash it and it's still not ironed. Hope you like these.

    When I make flying geese or anything else that I have to cut a corner off of I sew another seam so that I have a HST block out of the left overs. Most are about 1 1/2 square. I'm saving them all up to make a quilt out of. LOL I might have enough by the time I'm 100 but it will be something with all those tiny HSTs.

    What a difference the orange and purple make in the look.

    I like them both.
