The Mystery of Half Square Triangles

Hi Everyone,

Okay, so I am finally working on my mystery quilt from back in June! Remember, when I had all of you guess which fabric I chose. Remember now

Well, anyway I have gotten all the fabric cut, which was clue #1 and now I am on clue # 2. Yes, I am behind, but that's what I get for going away on vacation. Clue # 2 is full of half square triangles. Here are some pictures.

I am very obsessive about those little dog ears and just have to cut them all off to square up each tiny little block. You can see all those tiny little snibbles there in the picture. That could be why it is taking me so long to get through this clue. But hopefully all my points will match in the end. I hope there isn't any quilt police out there. 

I have also posted some new pictures today of customer quilts here. And don't forget to check out my new pattern page here

Check back for another quick post later this week for more mysterious, I mean mystery quilt progress!

Happy Quilting!

I just laughed, I'm really obsessive about chopping off dog ears too.

Here I go: Me too! Can't have those little dog ears on--they drive me crazy. I recently got one of those revolving cutting mats with these little ears in mind (among other useful uses). Can't wait to see the next mysterious step!

That's so funny ... I was recently going to post something asking if anyone else does that, because I'm obsessive about it too. But judging from your post and all the comments so far, I have nothing to be embarrassed about! : )
