This photo below is an example of lights, mediums & darks. In fact, these are 4 1/2" star blocks that I just finished working on for my local guild's raffle quilt for next year.
After sewing the flying geese sections of these blocks I was going to be left with the little bitty triangles. So before I cut off the triangles from the corners, I sewed them together. Then I cut them off & pressed them. I couldn't bear to throw them away these perfectly cute half square triangles. So I sewed these together & here you have a four patch that appears to be a 1 7/8" by 1 3/4" square.
So here are the rest of the half square triangles from the star block flying geese. So what am I going to do with them, you ask? I don't know. This is the beauty of it. When I quilt, sew, or draw, it is my own creation. No one is around to tell me to do it this way or that way or who is this quilt for? I do know one thing for sure......these itty bitty wonky four patches will not be in any quilt show.
I'll have another post for tomorrow. For now good night.....
