scrap buster

my mass of triangle scraps
So as I am working on my floral pinwheel quilt, I have amassed a collection of little triangles - the scraps left-over from making the pinwheel blocks. Not one to waste things, I wondered what I could do with these triangles. I googled triangle quilt patterns to no avail.

Today, as I sat at my sewing machine
procrastinating, I started playing with the triangles. Turns out they fit together quite nicely. So I made a little 5.75 x 5.75 block out of four scrap triangles. Looks like the beginning of a beautiful quilt!
