What to do with 42, 2½” squares

Mary: – I have a challenge on with four friends who all have the same pack of 42, 2½” squares of Chateau Rouge fabrics by Moda.  We are supposed to make ‘something’ by the end of March.  Time is marching on!

I decided a quick way to start was to make half square triangles. diagonals marked   I paired each dark square with a light square, drew a diagonal on the reverse with a Frixon pen (these are brilliant, the marks just iron off!) and then sewed a ¼” seam either side of the marked line.  Cut them apart on the drawn line.

2½ inch squaresPressed them open and now I have 40 half square triangles.

half square trianglesI’ve played around with four possible layouts.  Will let you know which one I decide to sew together…..
