Got this link off a facebook free quilt patterns page. I think I vaguely remember us talking about this once before, but thought I'd post it. If you don't care too much about the bias aspect...it's a quick easy way to make pinwheels or multiple 1/2 square triangles.

TMM, that's just why when I bought my fabric a couple of weeks ago from
Connecting Threads I bought 1-10" charm pack! I'm going to try this and add
to the squares and make a lap quilt. Pinwheel of course!

I also bought 5-5" charm packs! They were only $2.28 per pack! How could I
resist? I plan to make a patch work quilt with those and just tie it. Nothing
fancy.

TXmm that is my next project.... the one I just made was the disappearing 9 patch.... sew nine charms together and cut down and across the middle ... then twist and turn putting them pack together... I love these new ideas...

You know I was just thinking about this way of doing the HST and it occured to me, if you laid the two charm squares right sides together, then stitched 1/4" down two opposite sides and cut down the middle you'd have fast units like Anita called Piano keys, pairs of 2 1/2" strips sewed together. Would be faster than the labourious cutting and then matching up then stitching I did on the fall panel last week
