Happy Half Square Block SIX

Happy Half Square Project
Block SIX

These are kinda addicting..
Just to see how and where you can place Half squares to make  a block!

This is my BLOCK SIX
and I wanted to do all red...
Mostly because my stack of red is large,
and the other reason
I have a few blocks that are just blues....

so I thought this might even it out??

Again - you need 16 Half Squares for this block

And then I was chatting on the phone with my son,
and started playing around with colors

This might be cool as a two colored block too
Gives it a little spinny look?


Kat over at 
Put this in her computer programs - and check this out!

it creates a secondary pattern!!
Love it!!
Thanks Kat!!

Hmmm, I like this a lot. I think I might use it for one of my veterans quilts. A 3" hst block is perfect.

Very cool block, Alycia and Kat's computer program turned that two-color option into an AWESOME looking quilt design!

These are so fun to make and explore. Really like the way the blue makes a spinning pinwheel. Thanks for taking us on your trip with 1/2 square triangles.

Great block and the secondary block pattern is perfect!

I like it both ways, single color and two tone. There is so much you can do with HSTs.
