I often claim to have a Quilting "Hobby" in attempts to hide my obsession with fabric and color.

Half Square Triangles!

Well, having grown bored with squares, but not yet ready for curves, I decided to take on the mysterious Half Square Triangle.  I found a pattern called North by Northwest and decided with a color change up to make my own version.

I pulled from my Batik stash to make this in Blues, Greens, Purples, Browns, and a few Mulberry. It called for 1100 HST blocks, and I think I ended up using just about 900 of them. That is a lot of pressing time.

My plan is to back it with a soft flannel in blue. It's a nice lap size, good for naps.
