Kaleidoscope Quilt

More half square triangles, the patterns are endless!  Inspiration came directly from this quilt.

 For the half square triangles (HST)  I cut 6 inch square and trimmed them to 5.5inches (using this method). There are many methods for HST that make more than 2 at a time, but for some reason I stick to the first way I was taught.
for quilting, I stitched in the ditch along each square, nothing fancy here.

I like this quilt so much I actually have another to share. :)
