It's Possible I've Misplaced My Better Judgement

Last time we talked about my leaders and enders quilt, "Hello, Yellow," I said I was going to do a Half-Square Triangle (HST) quilt to join in on the Triangle Madness project over at Goddess in Progress Quilts. Of course, I was planning to follow her example and go with a nice, big 4" finished block. Because that would be sensible.

And we all know that I'm nothing if not sensible.

Hahahahahahahahahaha.

Okay, so I'm totally not. Which might be why I've finished so few quilts, but we'll save that discussion for another day.

The point of today is that I decided to do 2" finished blocks instead. So, instead of looking like this:

 Hello Yellow HST Quilt Old Layout

The quilt is going to look like this:

 Hello Yellow HST Quilt New Layout

Great, huh?

Of course both my husband and my best friend seriously questioned by judgement (rightly so), so to be absolutely sure, I made up a couple of samples. That's some of the 4" (finished) units on the left, and the 2" on the right:

I think I'm gonna love this quilt.

And with all this scrummy yellow fabric, who wouldn't, I ask you? Who?

Seriously.

What about you? Do you have good quilting judgement?
