It is FEBRUARY!!! That means new block of the month patterns with Craftsy!! Hurray! You should join up, it's free.
This month's blocks involve two different ways to make half-square triangles.
I'm using Around The Town fabric I received as a birthday present. It was/is done by Connecting Threads. Love that company! Anywho, here are my blocks, the Balkan Puzzle Piece Block and the Chunky Chevron Block:
Half-square triangle quilts seem to be the plan for my week. I made this fun, bird quilt top a few weeks ago using a quilt kit from Connecting Threads. I had a bunch of triangle pieces left over so I made them into half-square triangles.
So, using my new knowledge of half-square triangles I began arranging and rearranging the pieces. I could do this:
Oh, or bear paws!
Then I thought about doing each block a different one.
Or a small chevron quilt.
Hmm, who knew there would be so many possibilities!
The last one I came up with was this little baby bear paw quilt...and I decided I liked all the options. So, why not go with the one I already had laying out on the table.
Now I have another decision. What color should I use for the sashing:S?
