Another Scrappy Quilt

This little cutie is made from lots of leftover five-inch squares from various charm packs and other scraps. I made enough half square triangles so I wouldn't have to repeat too many of the same fabrics within the quilt. I ended up with two sets of these HST because I used the method of placing two squares right sides together, marking a line down the center diagonally, then sewing a seam a quarter inch on each side of the line, then cutting on the line. Now I can make another quilt similar to this one without having to make the HST.

I found just enough of the tone on tone red fabric
in my stash to make the border and binding.

And I had the perfect fabric for the backing!
