I'm a devotee of double sewing my sew-n-flip corners to get bonus half square triangles. There's a tutorial at Quiltville on the subject called Bonus Triangles Bonanza that explains it far better than I could. Take special note of her comments on making yourself a triangle buddy - a novel idea that will save you hours of trimming and squaring. There's a couple of quilt blocks that I've been making with these that I really love.
Every time I see those stars they make me smile - I'm going to sash them to make a wall quilt.
The little frugal blocks are really small, each 16 patch square will finish at 6". I can't see making anything bigger than a table runner with them.
The one draw back to working with HSTs this small is the number of seams and layers of fabrics within such a small block. It can become rather tedious and there's almost as much fabric in the seams as on the surface of the block. That can add a lot of weight to a bigger project.
Box # 6 is a long standing project - my Orphan Thimbleberries
This box contains various blocks and partial blocks all made with thimbleberries fabrics. Every now and then, when I want to explore colour and creativity, I take this project out and work on it, adding fabrics here and there to make a block or series of blocks fit. Piecing left over components into quilt blocks can be an adventure. It's like a giant jigsaw puzzle that I get to colour as I go. I've taken a pic of one corner panel of my orphan quilt.
The Orphan box also contains blocks I made to practice something (like getting perfect and precise star points) or the components of abandonned projects (like 60 little pink and yellow 9 patches). I've used rows of these stars to lengthen a quilt backing or as the feature in a new quilt project.
Okay. Two smaller projects queued up and two boxes I've got to keep and find room for.
