And to make those, I cheated on making the half square triangles. I took them from a box where I keep trimmed bonus HSTs sized 1.5", 1.75", and 2".
I might have made more, but as I was digging in the crumb box for the bigger chunks, I got distracted by thinking about what kind of project could use these skinny little bits.... Now I think I've mentioned before that my crumbs are on the tiny side. Here's a pic of what I mean. Not quite an inch wide and two inches long. Now, why on earth did I keep that?
Thoughts of Tonya's lego blocks (link on the right under tutorials) running through my head, and images of Katell's gorgeous crumb blocks... Have you seen them? I love the butterflies she posted on her blog and to the Flickr Group Pool? A link to her blog is here. Some of the components in her Ohio Stars are cut from stripped fabrics. That's when I started combining skinny strips to make big enough pieces of fabric from which to cut bigger block components. And that took up most of the rest of the night.
