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.
