half square triangles

After a very busy Christmas I was ready to sit down and do some sewing again. Last year for Christmas my mom gave me a packet of Thangles papers for making 2 inch half square triangles. I have used half square triangle paper before which is great for making lots the same but the thangles papers make only 6 at a time - perfect I think for a scrap quilt!

My last scrap quilt was pieced mostly with flying geese which I enjoyed making very much. This time I will use lots of half square triangles made with the Thangles papers.
So over the weekend I made a small stack of them - now I get to play around with them until I decide on a design to use. I can tell its going to be hard to decide... :0)

Happy 2009!!
and Happy Quilting!!
