Hip to be Squared

Well, I've dedicated quite a bit of my week to starting and working on a quilt that my sister asked me to do for her back in February. While here for a visit, she selected a quilt from the Feb. 2003 issue of American Patchwork & Quilting called, Red Double X. after her selection I took her up to the Fabric Depot in Portland where she then selected this array of black and white prints for the quilt. 12 black on white prints and 12 white on black. After cutting out a total of 552 3" squares I then proceeded to turn each into half square triangles using a method I learned about 7 years ago while attending a $5 quilt club at Grandma's Attic. Now I am on to squaring the half square triangles into 2 1/2" squares. They are about 3/4 finished and I am looking forward to moving on to the next step. Pairing the half square triangles with solid 2 1/2" squares to make a total of 90, 6 1/2" squares. So be sure to check back for further progress on this quilt.
