This week in the Star Surround Quiltalong its all about half square triangles. Choices had to be made in my 3" blocks for combinations, with each fabric appearing in two different sets. Decisions, decisions!
Got that difficult bit done and then got stuck into making the HST's.

(I apologise for the slightly smeary look of these photos, after seeing the first couple I discovered greasy fingerprint on the lens. Note to self, when letting hubby and sons borrow camera to go to wrestling, ensure lens is cleaned on return!)
Step 2: Sewed 1/4" away from both sides of the line and
Step 3: Slice all these squares in half.
Step 4: Pressed all of the HST's open.
Step 6: Trimmed all the HST's to 2.5" square (well I've nearly finished them!).
Phew, just in time for the next step!
