Cutting two quilts at one time

When I started cutting up my last quilt - the scrappy Wrench - I decided that I would cut another square of the same fabric for another quilt.  At that stage I had not decided what the "other quilt" might be.  However, as I sewed the wrench blocks, I also sewed sets of half square triangles.  There are lots of things you can do with HST's.  By the time I had finished the first quilt, I had 30 of the little blocks made and set aside.

 Last night I got busy and cut another 30 light squares and 30 dark squares.  It did not take that long and today I sewed them into blocks.
I am still playing with ideas for these little pieces.  No matter what I make, I know for sure I will need a whole lot more!  Or will I?  should this be a full sized quilt, or will I just leave it at cot size?

I started with a zig zag, but if you turn the blocks on another angle, you end up with straight lines diagonally across the quilt.  No doubt I will work out the size and setting in due course.  It is rather appealing to know that I can make 60 little blocks in about an hour using the Quilter's Quick Quarter ruler.
I like these rulers so much, that I decided to stock them on the Legend and Lace website.  They are not there yet, but will be in a day or two.  Will post again with a demo on how to use them.
