And I also remembered this - one of my favorite pictures, a late 1960's Jason Crum mural (from a vintage visual teaching aid). I love the half square triangles; the colors, the patterns made by the lines and different values.
Lucky for me I just bought a die cutter, and in less than an hour I had run all the rectangles through to become half square triangles. I pieced the HST's somewhat randomly, the only criteria was that the two halves could not be from the same color family, and one half had to be a lighter value. And so, with help of my lovely assistant...
Here is my Jason Crum inspired t-shirt sample half square triangle quilt top!
To be honest, I needed a project that would just go together fast and be finished - know what I mean? So yes, the piecing is a little wonky - some of the corners do not line up perfectly, but that doesn't bother me in the least. I still love it!
I plan on quilting it as simply as possible, turning it into a wall-hanging, hopefully to hang somewhere in the house!
