    String pieced halfsquare triangles

    What to make of them ?

    Hi

    I have been string piecing for a while and now I have 44 light and 44 dark half square triangles.
    I have no ide what to make of them. Only thing I know is that I do not want to make a barn rising or diamond setting.

    I started with a paper square 6 1/2 " and when I covered it with fabric I cut it on a diagonal to make the hst.
    I do not know what size that make them. But they are fairly large.

    Any ideas ?

    Here is a picture of some of them.

    God, Grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change,
    The stash to make a quilt to help me cope,
    A quilt to give to comfort those I love in times of hurt, fear and uncertainty.
    And the courage to keep on sewing when life itself seems held together by a single thread of hope.

    Wow, those are great! I love string piecing, something about the feel of the fabric on the paper and the crinkly sound is so pleasing to me (am I the only one, I might be weird). Here's a pic of my mom's WOP with HSTs, I am sure you could find a completed on on pinterest or something, she just started with the points in the middle and just swirlied it around. I think it would look spectacular with those pretty block you made! Anything will, really - can't wait to see it!

    If at first you don't succeed, try doing it the way your mom told you to in the first place

      Hello I like your proposal I have seen some in Pinterest and I have always liked it, I am a little scrappy, but the proposal of pharris 123 I liked it wold be very nice because its squares are very different, any decision will be very spectacular, I encourage

        Not sure what to do with them ---- what do you need (quilt, table runner, bag, etc.)? Or, what do you think will sell?

        Love the scrappy-ness. One thing to consider: putting a thin sashing between the square blocks and/or a thin diagonal strip between the hypotenuse (long sides) of the triangle using some neutral, non-attention getting color so as to keep the focus on the triangles.

          Your layout of blocks looks great to me.

            I do like your barn raising layout but then again that is one of my favorite. But with your nice light to dark combination this would look very nice in a row and furrow layout too.
            Use it up, wear it out, make it do or do without.

              Thank you!

              I am making a bed quilt for my self. And I thought I would make something different then what I have done before but my imagination will not cooperate.

              I guess I will have to surf the web to see if there is a picture to spark my mind.

              Have a nice day/evening.

                I like the fourth one down on this page, especially with the strips, i think the effect would be great.
