Happy Half Square Project

Welcome to my New Scrappy Project!!

I am calling it the 
Happy Half Square Project

it is just a fun way to try some new blocks, use up some of my 5 inch square pieces, and add a little spice to my quilting life!!

My Plan ( and remember - its a plan) is to release a new block each week that uses 16 Half Square Triangle blocks.   You can use ANY size square you want to make these blocks. 

I am using a 5 inch square.  My son has been helping me cut scraps and I have a HUGE HUGE pile of 5 inch Squares.... so it makes a rather large block - but its all good - you know all of mine will turn into Quilts of Valor - so the bigger the block, the faster the top comes together, and another Veteran is Shown the Love!!

Block One will Release on June 24th - and I will provide the links here to each post... just in case you want to follow along.. or pick a block to make - or just cheer me on it doing these blocks!

Hi Alycia,
I couldn’t get a comment posted on your new mystery quilt so I’m posting here. I love this sampler and will refer to it again.
I’m planning to follow your new mystery but I don’t have 1 1/2 yards of any one fabric, just scraps and 1/2 yard pieces. Will it work with scrappy bits or look too jumbled?
By the way I’ve made some good use of the isolation by making 8 QOV quilts and finishing 4 ufos for myself. I’m currently following SAHRR (4 times) and the exploding heart (wooden spools) online, but it isn’t enough. I’m so grateful you’re doing one too.
I love your blog.
