This week I am sewing the rows together for my Black and White Half Square Triangle exercicse. Five rows done. The missing row is stacked next to my sewing machine as I type this, all ready to be stitched. This is going together very nicely. My border fabric arrived last week, so this quilt top should be completed by the weekend.
This quilt was so much fun to put together. I used all half square triangle units, 2 1/2" square. I made 25 blocks, each using 16 half square triangle blocks, arranged in a different way. I got the idea from Thelma and Carrie's Christmas Vacation Sew Along, where they made quilts using half square triangles based on Camille Roskelley's experiment using only half square triangles, arranged different ways to make a quilt top with no block repeated.
You could use any type of fabrics, 30's could be super fun, so would a holiday color theme version.
Here are a few of my favorite blocks:
