Happy Half Square Project Block NINE

 

Happy Half Square Project
Block NINE





When I sketched this one - I was thinking three colors would be awesome!
But then I stumbled on what I would want in the center...all the same print?
different ones? So i decided to try it with the same fabric....




Then!! Kat ( ScrapBox Quilts)  has been sending me photos of the blocks worked into quilts, so I asked if maybe she wanted to do it ahead of the blog post - and you know what? that girl outdid herself!!


Check all these awesome versions out!! As a Visual person - I LOVE LOVE LOVE these!!




And with sashing.


And then one on point!
I like this!!


and last... on point with sashings



I think she outdid herself!!  

have you found a block you like best yet?  There are more to come!

check out my ebay sales....you might really need something!

I’m having such fun with these HHS's. I’m sketching them all out and when I run out of steam ‘figuratively', I plop 16 HST on my design board and walla! There is a beautiful block! I should have 16 blocks so far but only have 8 completed so far. I’m awaiting more scraps at the end of projects that I brought along on vacation. Have a Happy Half Square Day!

Fun! A few of those settings lose the star design and that is really interesting!

I've been saving each block with a HST sampler in mind . . .

She did come up with some awesome quilts for that block. A very fun and versatile block. There's lots of options for fabric placement.

Block 5 is my favorite so far. There are several others in close contention.

Another great block, and wonderful mock-ups to see what it would be like. Thanks to both of you!
