Adventures with Half Square Triangles

I bought a pattern that would make hundreds of half square triangles.  I load the fabric and tell the computer to work this pattern.  When it is done I cut all of these patterns apart and trim them.  Each group of patterns would make 144 of these blocks.

With this pile of blocks I can make many different quilt patterns.  Here is the one that I just finished for a young women who just got married.

Here is the close up of the quilting.  Kind of a inside out paisley. 

The trimming of all 800 half square triangles was a little time consuming but it was better than sewing each block individually.
