More half square triangles

Can you believe I won another set of half square triangle blocks at Capital Quilters? Just 13 months after winning more than 200 half square triangle blocks, I've won these much bigger blocks.

Don't they look great when they're all on the wall together.

I made three blocks, and I ended up winning all 32 blocks. Here are some of my favourites:

I've already got a plan in my head for these blocks.  I think I'll add sashing and set them on point so they look like pyramids.  Well, that's the plan at this stage.  I suspect it will be months before I actually start to do anything with them. 

Our guild now has a blog, a Facebook page and an Instagram account (@capitalquilters) if you would like to follow us.  We're getting ready for our QUILTED exhibition which will be at the brand new Lower Hutt Events Centre on 11-12 August 2018. 

I'm working on two quilts for our challenges.  Both will be a secret until the exhibition opens.  I hope to see you there.

Hi Wendy, I actually followed Frances on her Nearly Insane journey. And now with her Farmer's Wife.
I love what you mom has made too. These blocks are like little puzzles to figure out how best to fit together and are perfect for EPP I think.
How lucky to be such a fine winner! I'm sure you will make something wonderful with those blocks.

How are the points on these blocks so pointy? I never expect such good results from a group project!
