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.
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.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.
