I am going to use two Marcia Derse charm packs I bought at Missouri Star Quilt Company and some black and white fabric from my LQS, Kim Schaeffer from Andover as the other half of the triangle. I have no pattern in mind. As mentioned by Vicki, I bought a copy, used, of Spectacular Scraps by Judy Hooworth and Margaret Rolfe. In there are many layout ideas. Once I have all the blocks made, I will decide how to put it together. This is a challenge to myself. I was a little disappointed in the Derse squares as they were grayer in color than I like. I like fabric a little brighter. I am hoping the black and white will help.
Wanda, on her blog, is doing gorgeous colors with her HSTs.
I took some photos of my start. I make HST with the lines down the square method as when I sew triangles, the bias always gets me.
