they're strawberries!

It's not a Christmas quilt. Just forget that it's December and try not to make assumptions about the red and green. I got the idea for Strawberry Stars last summer but didn't start the quilt until this week.

What finally motivated me? The Easy Angle and Companion Angle. I'd been waiting until I got the 1" finished half square triangle die for my Go! Cutter, but after playing with my rulers for Orca Bay I decided to just go for it.

I chickened out a bit and I'm making slightly larger triangles than my original plan -- these are 1 1/2" finished -- which means I'll wind up with the same finished dimensions as my Grecian Squares quilt. Appropriate, since it was the Grecian Square quilt that inspired this one.

Okay, I don't know anything about quilting, but that looks like a pretty cool pattern :)
