Yesterday I read Bonnie Hunter’s next clue for Easy Street. She doesn’t save bonus triangles from 2″ squares…but I do and maybe you want to too.
I love them and make wonderful use of them. If you are working on Easy Street clue #5, you can end up with 128 ~ 1 1/2″ half square triangles from this project. I have made MANY of my Quilt Square Quilt Along blocks with bonus triangles. I made a wall hanging too.
Two of those projects that used bonus half square triangles just happen to be on the quilting machine.
The block on the left that supposed to the applique block for this month’s Quilt Square Quilt Along used bonus triangles.
This Country Threads wall hanging used LOTS!! Every one of those half square triangles was already sewn and ready to go when I wanted to make this project. I just grabbed them out of the bag and started sewing.
