    I’ve got a ‘thing’ for HSTs and Pinwheel Blocks… so that layout looks great!

    It is lovely. If it’s been on your design wall for days and you haven’t felt the need to rearrange it then it must be the right choice for you!

    That’s a lovely block!!! I’m still working on mastering HST, but I’ve several projects in mind where they will be prominent. Can’t wait to see your HST creation!!!

    Ooh, I like this!

    I try not to scroll through for inspiration too much. I find the hours seen to disappear when I do! ☺

    This is such a lovely block. So many possibilities with fabrics. I have to be careful when I go to pinterest I loose time. Have a lovely day.

    Hi Brooke! I just love playing around with HSTs. They are so versatile and you just never know what pattern you will stumble upon. This block looks slick – I especially love the different shades of blue fabrics interspersed throughout. ~smile~ Roseanne

    Interesting block, does it have a name?

    Yes, use the 1/2 squares to make what you want, the design has been calling to you.

    I like this block a lot. I am thinking of using oversized HST’s — to make a bed quilt using this block pattern. I think it would be really fun if I could make nine 30″ blocks.

    Thanks for sharing this idea! I have tons of leftover HSTs from binding trims that I hate to throw away. PS. Would you kindly share the dimensions of your super capes? I want to make some for our Child Life Department at the hospital where I work! Peds nurse for life!!

    Very interesting project!

    Love how this block lays out. Will have to remember it for the umpteen HST’s that I need to make from the scraps that a friend sent me. And thanks for the chance to wind the mystery giveaway!

    Great idea. I love playing with hst’s. I always have to take a picture, though, because I come up with something I really like, then put them away, and the next time I take them out I can’t remember what I thought was brilliant. 🙂 But it’s fun–like a kids game of Tantagrams. Which is another good idea for things to make for your grandbaby eventually, little tantagram cards made of fabric or felt to make patterns from…

    I have to limit “looking for inspiration”. It’s like going down a rabbit hole for me. Love the block. Thanks for the opportunity to enter the giveaway.

    I like it! Sew it up and get ‘er done!
