While sorting through my orphan blocks I found some cute little half square triangles. They spoke to me. So I decided to do a little scrap busting. I pulled my low volume scrap bin out. As well as my navy bin. After cutting squares to match the size of my half square triangles. I arranged them into nine patches. Wha-la! Sho fly blocks were created.
So much fun to find homes for this set of half square triangles. This isn’t the first time the orphan block bin has been a rewarding play session. Last time I combined most of the half square triangles in the bin to make a bunch of different blocks. That got thrown up on the design wall. And finally became a Plan B quilt.
I’m not sure where these cute guys will end up. They may become another Plan B quilt. Maybe a little play with different ways to make a sho fly block, like I did in my Ho Down quilt. Wherever the adventure takes me. I’m sure it will be fun.
