Building Blocks: Our New Plan

After abandoning the original Modern Building Blocks pattern, DAUGHTER and I decided to play around with half-square triangles.  Right now we are making blocks that use only HST's.  Since we are keeping the layout of the original pattern we started with the largest blocks.  

First up are the two 36 inch blocks.  
My block.  Wishing I'd have bought more of that flower print in the center... oh well!

DAUGHTER's block. 
DAUGHTER says this one is a little bit 'Eye of Sauron', but she likes it anyway. 

My block.

DAUGHTER'S block. 

We need just one 30 inch block. 
Here's mine.  Isn't it interesting how different this blocks looks with the different backgrounds?

Here's DAUGHTER's. 

And we have one 24 inch block. 
My block. My favorite one so far. 

 DAUGHTER's block.  

Making these giant blocks was a fun adventure!  
Hope you are having quilting adventures, too!

It amazes me how many different blocks you can make with HSTs think this is a good idea rather making the blocks given and so far you both have made some wonderful blocks. I have a HST flimsy waiting to be sandwiched and quilted along with a few others in the same state
