Fun with Half Square Triangles. You can make so many interesting quilts with Half Square Triangles. I love how adorable they look sewn into squares.
I strip pieced a whole load of them with these gorgeous fabrics 'Union Blues' by Barbara Brackman. I am such a sucker for blue and cream fabrics. To press them I found it better to leave the strip pieced blocks in tacked them clip them apart after I pressed each one. I have piles of squares ready to sew together. It's a bleak day outside, but my sewing room is nice and cozy.
I can now show you the finished quilt. Union Blues Quilt Pattern is almost ready to add to the website. so you can have fun with all the half square triangles too.
Looks like I could do with a new cover on my ironing board!

Making four Flying Geese units at a time is a great time saver, and a wonderful method. I love to oversize the units and trim them down to the correct size for perfect blocks. Read how I go about making these versatile units that I use in almost every quilt I make.
