Feeling versatile

I made some "broken dishes" blocks for the may month of the Comfort circle (do good stitches), using this tutorial.  It's a really traditional block and easy to make.

The basis of this block, of many many blocks actually are HST's, Half Square Triangles.
To make them you basically cut 2 contrasting squares, lay them on top of each other, right sides facing each other. Take a pen and a ruler and draw a diagonal line with a pen. Then just sew two lines 1/4 inch form the line you drew.

Cut on the drawn line and voila. You have a square made of  two triangles. I'm always amazed as to what you can make of them using different layouts. Just some examples:

The possibilities are endless!

Die "ijsjes-stof" heb ik gebruikt voor een pyjama. Cool.
