Using this tutorial, Making Half Square Triangles (Even If You Know How), make 48 HST blocks (4 1/2") for a small baby quilt or 96 HST blocks (4 1/2") for a lap quilt. Each block will require one light and one dark 5" Charm Square.
Organize your HSTs into sets of pairs with
coordinating colors facing each other.
Chain piece the pairs, remembering to keep the colored sides together.
Organizing your blocks as you desire,
sew 3 of the sets together to make a row.
Now, here is the fun part!
Line your rows vertically on your cutting mat
and cut them in half lengthwise.
Each half will be 2 1/4" wide.
Rearrange your strips like this.
Or mix up the colors like this.
Play around with the strips to create these pattern options.
