i donated these to my local community living curling bonspeil this past weekend. the organizers said they sold twice as many raffle tickets this year compared to last when it was just for a bottle of baileys. by far my new go to quilt for charity donations... you can get two tops for the work of one.  Wink

nope, just the two square right sides together. draw a line corner to corner, sew on either side of the line, cut apart...

Very, very pretty!!

What are "1/2 square triangle secret tricks" - that you did not use?
Is there any place I could go to find out about them?

I think that is the 1/2 square triangle trick that you used. I found this link that explains it.http://www.patchwork-and-quilting.com/quick-pieced-half-square-triangles.html

Beautiful sloth!

There's discussion and links here on a few other ways to make them! I've only ever made them the way sloth did but will definitely try the tube method sometime Grin

This is absolutely great!  It's simple but elegant.  I actually have been thinking of making this very quilt for a neighbour going through a rough patch.  Thanks for the inspiration!

i think i will try the tube method sometime myself. 

my only problem is tend to scrappy scrappy scrappy quilts and the tube gives you lots of the same. i suppose with a small enough triangle tho.  hmmm.  off to add another to my list.  Wink

That's what I was thinking, but then you will have lots of triangles made up for all your future scrappy quilt needs lol! Grin
