Making Half-Square Triangles Over and Over Again

I have become obsessed with making Half-Square Triangles.
I finished up two small baby quilts last week, even quilted and bound them and actually got labels on them!


I have cut all the squares I need to demonstrate my Stitching Lines for a quilt show this weekend, and it's all I can do to keep from making them up this week before I go.





I was never a person who liked to make the same quilt over and over again. I had to become that person when I started designing quilt patterns. And sometimes, I really have to push myself to remake a pattern.
But these little squares have become addicting.

I have HST's everywhere........the floor, in baskets, in ziplock bags.




And there are a lot of them that I can't remember what I was going to do with them! These are senior moments that I have. LOL
Sounds like another really scrappy one, and another really big one.

Who else is obsessed with making a certain kind of block?

Hello my name is Joy and I have an obsession. I think I can give you competition on the half square triangle addiction. LOL Thank goodness there are so many ways to use them.

Hi, my name is Joy as well, I live in the UK, after a break of 15 years I've taaken up patchwork again. Just discovered your wonderful blog. I'm making loads of HSTs for a small quilt and wish I had your stitching lines! Love your mug rugs, going to make some! xx
