Half Squares

I think Half Square Triangles are my favorite block. They can make a quilt look scrappy, fussy, or organized.

I started this quilt several years ago, and while going through my ufo's I discovered this one would be great for Quilts of Valor.

How about you? Do you have a favorite quilt  block?

Hi Jocelyn,
I agree on the HST block, although I used to be afraid of them. Now that I have conquered that fear, I am amazed at how versatile the block is. I adore pinwheels, but to think they also make flying geese and chevrons is just amazing. Love your quilt - so glad it is no longer a UFO and it will give someone so much pleasure. ~smile~ Roseanne

It looks great! Yes, such a good one for Quilts of Valor, too.

I am liking pin wheels and also a disappearing nine patch but there are so many blocks I have yet to try

I tend to gravitate towards star blocks....especially the sawtooth star block.

Ooh that's pretty!!! I love them too - I'm just not very good at them. Precise piecing doesn't seem to be in my genetic make-up. But I'll keep trying, cuz I do love them!

Flying Geese!! I love how they can create so many different looks. Your HST piece is so pretty.

HST's are so versatile! You're right about it being a perfect Quilt of Valor. It's great.

Though I am terrible at the precise cutting and stitching these triangles need, I love them and this pretty project is why. You are such a good sewist!
