Block of the Month 4 – Cactus Basket

???????????????????????????????

 

Sorry for the lack of posts recently, I’ve been feeling a bit blah about my blog and life in general, I think it’s the winter blues! I’m trying to give myself a virtual kick in the bum to get back on the go again!

Here is part 4 of my Block of the Month series. The first month I made the “Anvil” block, and the second month, I made a block called “Barbara Frietchie’s Star”, and in the third month, I tackled the “Brown Goose” block. This month, I made the “Cactus Basket” block, which is another traditional American quilt block.

This month, I found accuracy was a lot easier to get. I like the way half square triangles can be used in so many blocks! If you use HSTs, what is your favourite pattern to make with them?
