Creativity continues to abound in the Love Circle of do. Good Stitches.  Through an organization called Wrap Them in Love, our circle of 10 makes quilts to benefit children who need a little extra love and attention.

Ara Jane has come up with a creative use for regular, run-of-the-mill, half square triangles.

Triangles for do. Good Stitches Charity Bee

She tasked us with creating two sizes of half square triangles in a palette of  curry/golden yellow, bright saturated red, lavender, light bright green, and pale aqua/seafoam for one side of the half-square triangle. The other half of the squares should use any solid neutral fabric of our choosing (white, off-white, khaki, etc… but more on the brown side than grey).

She’s going to take all of our HSTs and lay them out per this sketched plan:
