Pinwheels and Flowers

Please excuse the poor quality photos. My lighting was terrible.
I finished this top today. This is made up of the "wanna be quarter square triangles". No one has told me what they are called yet. Sadly, it only used up 48 of my half-square triangles, but I did use up the floral print that I have had around for awhile!

A Quarter Square Triangle Wanna Be?

Anyone know what a quarter square triangle with only three triangles is called? I'm drawing a blank!

Quarter Square Triangles

Who do you know that has more half-square triangles than me?? Come on! There must be someone! Well, I sure would like to meet them! I think I have an awful lot of them. It comes from demonstrating my Stitching Lines at quilt shows. I can't seem to use them up. I think they reproduce when I'm not looking. And some of the squares have gotten together that never should have met up. I can't even show you the really bad ones. They are punished and sent to the trash bin!! Quarter square triangles use up two Half-Square Triangles! Yipee!! That's two gone! My half-square triangle supply is made with 3-1/2" squares. Some I have already squared up to 3". But they work just fine when paired up with untrimmed HST's. Another Yipee! I take two HST's that look good together, press seams to the dark, stack them right sides together, with dark on light. I pin the two ends of the seam, and lay a small strip of Stitching Lines on top. I line up one horizontal dotted line with the seam line on the top HST, and try to line up the center-line of strip with the corner points. I stitch on the two dotted lines.
Next, I tear away the sides of the Stitching Lines and cut on the solid line. I leave the small 1/4" remainder and press against it.
Then I square up the quarter square triangle to 2-1/2".
All done. Two HST's gone and now I have two quarter square triangles.
OOPS. What happened?
Not only do my HST's reproduce.
Now they change color on me. What's up with that?? All finished and looking good!

Baby Quilts and More Baby Quilts

New baby quilts in the works. Just need binding for these two.

Finished up these two last week and put in my Etsy shop. My shop is scrolling on the right side of the blog. I've got two more that still need to be quilted. Maybe that will be it for awhile. I want to get back to my second Scrappy Trip for my bedroom. I never thought I could make the same quilt over and over and over again. But, I enjoy making these little baby quilts. i've got a system going now and I love picking out all the fabrics. If I only used two fabrics, that would be a different story. The fun is in the choosing.

Birdie Quilt

I finished this birdie quilt this morning.
Since we have had rain on and off all morning, I couldn't get great light for this pic.

Our wonderful winter weather is supposed to go away tomorrow. But I like it this way for now.
