Short attention span

So...I liked the chunky strip sets I was making last time, but they didn't keep me interested for very long and I found I was doing that thing of unintentionally cutting pretty straight lines, which was giving me very orderly-looking chunks at that.  Thoughts of triangles and circles were whirling about my head so I decided 'nothing ventured, nothing gained' and started chopping.

I made some triangles, then put them back together into these.
For some reason I find it very entertaining to make all those crosses and concentric squares in this way, so I kept going.
When I get bored of doing this, I'll figure out what next, but for now I'm having fun.

I've wanted to make some like this. Haven't yet. Yours are wonderful and this will be another great quilt.

Oh, I love these!

Those are very interesting blocks. I like how each triangle for a block are not exactly identical. That gives them a warmer hand make scrappy look which I love. With cutting triangles out of the strips do are you getting leftover pieces which would be HSTs?

Yes, the 'what if' and 'how about this' moments!
When the inspiration is there, run with it.
I'm still working on borders and basting two quilts for hand quilting.
It's the repetition, a bit tedious for me but I've found some amazing tutorials that are giving me sparks
of hope.

Dare I say this, that looks way too regular and structured for you. I have a feeling you will add a bit of whimsy to them very soon :)

Playing and having fun is a good way to spend your time. There are the little things that help me not to focus only on all these ugly things around. Another surprise what you do with patterns and colors. Love to follow your steps.
