HST Block Combinations

I’m a sucker for a Half-Square Triangle (or HST).

I was wasting time on gaining inspiration from Pinterest and came across this fabulous image with soooooo many different HST block combinations.

If you’ve seen it before, then feel free to move along… but if you’re like me and haven’t seen it before, ENJOY!

    That certainly does give you a lot of options for HST! I love to browse through Pinterest, but I just don't have time yet to have a page. I would love to, though!

    I find Pinterest so handy for keeping idea files.

  3. I love the quilt that was made from all of these HST designs!

    Who would have thought the humble HST could make soooo many different designs? Love this!

  5. Amazing what you can do with a half square triangle! Imagine when you then start adding different colours, the possibilities are almost endless!

  6. A lovely quilt.Pinterest is so good for inspiration andd findingg jobs for Ron(laterON)

  7. I love Pinterest and I collect ideas for myself on there and ideas for school as well. I don't think it is a time waster myself but rather a great place to store ideas. I've made a number of the recipes and projects that I have pinned too! Thanks for the lovely HST image! So many combinations that I hadn't thought of!

  8. I am not on Pinterest, Facebook or Twitter. I find it hard enough to keep up with all the blogs in my reading list without adding any other computer related activities! LOL

  9. I have been searching Pinterest too for designs that use half-square triangles. I have been given bags of "waste" triangles from friends at guild and trying to find a way to use them. This is perfect !!!
