Here it goes....

I'm part of an "International" Art swap where you can send drawings, prints, sewing etc... I was quite happy with that but I went to have a look at my partner and she is soooooo artistic I'm getting frightened....(she's a bead and fabric wall hanging I think)
I wanted to make a mini quilt maybe something Christmassy to use as a decoration or table protector for hot pots?
It has to be completed in a week (that 's the rule)
Have you talented ladies got any ideas of something fast an easy ?(I'm still very new to quilting)

Many thanks...

By the way if any of you would like to take part just say the word and I'll send you some info.

Can't get much simpler than HST's and the layout options are endless.  Half-square triangle units are fast to make and easy to make them look so pretty.

Here are some ideas to ponder:


Here's my stuff:


Are you making a selvage quilt?  I have some to share. PM me.

I love that last one. And if you did it in oranges with blue behind it, it would look like a fish. :-)

Woohoo! Baby Clark is on the way. Due October 24th.

Thanks Blondgirl,

Your block are gorgeous. Following your advice, I have decided to try HSTs. I've seen a pattern of an 8 points star made with it. I will post the result if I manage to make it.
