    I just kept sewing and sewing curiousity got the best of me. I just had to see what it was going to look like and pretty soon it was done. Still debating on a border or two but like the results so far.[ATTACH=CONFIG]518211[/ATTACH]

    Me too, Jaba... I couldn't stop! Love your pretty colors, and also Jane's yellow and red with the black/whites.

    Sew 8 split nine-patch blocks measuring 9 ½” unfinished.
    Seems to me we need 12 each of the large squares, in order to make 24 half-square triangle blocks. Am I missing something?

    Krista, I think you are right. it's 24 half squares triangles. 3 half squares x 8 = 24 half squares. 24 x .5 = 12 of the larger squares of both primary & secondary colors.

    It's eight 9 patches. 8x9=72

    24 HST
    24 primary sq
    24 secondary sq

    24+24+24=72
