RR June – Half Square Triangles

Happy Summer 2021, Robins!

Maybe with the sun being out and the social gathering restrictions lifting, sewing falls overboard. This month’s prompt may put some wind in your sails: the easy and versatile half square triangle (HST). They are quick to assemble, generate very little waste, and there are many patterns that HST can be arranged in. Please make your HSTs in any size and colour you want.

When putting together some scrappy HSTs with low-volume whites and pastels, sailboats came to mind. Definitely a summer state of mind.
