I learned early on that I wasn't going to throw all those pieces away. So started to do as Bonnie does, sewing back across those little pieces so that when I cut them off I will have another half square triangle block.
Yes, after awhile you have loads of them so what to do--?
First I press them open then start to trim them to a usable size. I have from 1 in to 3 and a half inch. Stack in their separate stacks.
Here's the squaring up.
Then here is the little box with all the different sizes.
Here's what I made from them. Only added some small strips for orders.
made the sawtooth strips for the outer boarder.
Yes, and now it needs to be quilted. This will give me a little project to hand quilt while watching my one soap in the afternoon and the final week of baseball.
Unfortunately my Orioles won't be playing in the play-offs. Maybe next year.
Of course there is still loads of these HST to do something with.
