Quilty Quarters... More Scraps

Triangles... I have a plastic box full of 3" squares, actually I have boxes of all sizes but hey ho... I started with the 3" ones yesterday... I made a big pile of half square triangles and trimmed them down to 2 1/2", you might think I'm crackers but I really like making HST's, especially scrappy ones... anyway..... a few weeks ago I saw a quilt in one of Gillian's magazines.. one of those "I want to make you" quilts... so I am making one... I started using florals from my stash... the "why did I buy that" florals but I don't have enough big scraps for the larger triangles, they need a 8 7/8" square, so I'm cutting into some good stuff ... ooooer... not my gorgeous good stuff, just normal good stuff, ha ha ha. There's a booboo in these blocks that I have decided to leave in, can you spot it? More on this later..... the blocks I mean... not the booboo....
