My Ocean Quilt ~ Half Square Triangles

Still not sure which way my Ocean quilt will ebb to…(I know, I know)…It’ll come to me sooner or later.

I really need to get my design wall up! Last night, in a pinch, I taped up some flannel I had.

Here are two ideas that I was playing with using the few pieces that I sewed yesterday evening while listening to Monday Night Football (FALL IS COMING!!! FALL IS COMING!!!).

I think I’m leaning towards the design in the first picture.

I’m just making a huge amount of half square triangles…taking 6″ squares, drawing a line down the middle of one, then sewing a 1/4″ seam down both sides of the line. Cut down the middle, press, and you have two 1/2 square triangles. Luckily a 1/4″ is right down the middle of the left side of the Janome’s walking foot!
