I've started pulling fabrics for the May block. I love half-square triangles! These will be pretty small though. I'm contemplating doing the block just a bit differently though.

I thought the same thing DJ. I tried to calculate in my head but I think the HSTS for the 12 block are still to be just under 2 each. Definitely a skill builder block.

My 1/2 square triangles are not coming out the right size to match the rectangles. They can be trimmed to the right size, but that's not part of the directions as far as I can see. Anyone else have this problem, or am I not seeing something?

Oh yes, now I see where it does have you trim the 1/2 square triangles down to 2". I'm okay with that.

Where is everyone? I'm surprised I'm the first one to post my May block.

I did turn the baskets a different direction and cut the fabric for the large background squares in one piece, so construction was a bit different.

So far I'm very pleased with this BOM.
