Playing with Half Square Triangles

Last week I blogged about a bunch of greens and pinks that had been in my stash for a very long time and I was trying to figure out what to do with them.  (If you’re interested you can read about it here.)  As I went through and ironed each of them I realized some of them are down right ugly but I don’t think it matters with this kind of setting. 

I decided to cut them into 8” squares, pair a pink and green together and make half square triangles.  So far, so good.  Here are some of them thrown up on my design wall.  I have more made and still have some waiting to be sewn together but this at least this gives me an idea of what it will look like. 


Back to the sewing machine for a little bit, then my husband and I are head out to see the musical “A Chorus Line”.  I think this is the 5th time we’ve seen it.  It’s one of our very favorites. 




  1. They look great together like that.

  2. I like your pink and greens!! Just curious though, starting with 8" squares, what size is your finished HST?


Thanks for stopping by and leaving a comment. I love knowing that I'm not alone, blogging into thin air.
