I used to be one of those "toss those little cut off geese triangles" type of gal....then recently I came across a really cute quilt on someone's blog, made up of just random HST's from leftover projects. I guess that was an AH HA moment for me so as I assemble my "Swoon" blocks, Bee blocks, my "Designer Mystery" blocks etc. I throw the hst's in a small basket until I have enough to make a 9 patch type of block.
On Friday I took the basket and started pressing and trimming and then this afternoon I did some assembly....
There is a variety of backgrounds....black on white, white on white and even some tan dots on white.
I laid out what I have pressed so far but there is still a good size pile waiting for assembly later this week.
I don't always have 9 of the same hst's left over....most times I have 8 but occasionally I do have 10 so I will have to make a couple hst's later on as I get further into this project.
Do you save your triangles??
