Nice to see you here. The cushion looks lovely and well done you for chosing half square triangles for your first attempt.

I still favour squares and rectangles and try to avoid bias edges and points whenever possible.

Thanks folks, I am so surprised at the many different designs you can achieve using HSTs, I enjoy the design aspect more than the sewing! I think it would look better with smaller squares and a different colour or smaller print in the centre section. I'll certainly try again, I've been using fabric from dresses and skirts that I have got fed up with wearing and not good enough to donate to the charity bags.
