I find myself in possession of WAY too many medium toned 2" squares! I've been searching around for how to use them. I usually make 1/2 triangles but I like to use only very high-contrast fabrics. I find that when I use medium tones I get a mushy quilt. Cindy at Quilt Patterns from Seattle posted a very cute Scrappy Heart pattern. I really liked it but decided I didn't want to make that many more 1/2 square triangles so I came up this big heart that uses only FOUR HSTs YAY!! In the test heart I also used 2' background squares. TOO MUCH WORK. In the next squares I will use strips.
That's pretty much all I have going on. OH, I'm also considering making Granny Squares with my mediums. I'm kinda liking the ones I've seen around blogland.
