Inspiration strikes finally!

My design wall looks a little different tonight! Yeah!
(the Navy goat is for Dustin bc he asked)

Ok so tonight I posted to my blog and was trying to clear the backlog of blogs I needed to read before I went to bed.  And there it inspiration ... on Mommy's Nap Time!
So I'm talking about what the next step was with my Habitat challenge

I have had this mess on the wall stuck with what to do.  So I sewed sets of two segments together. Then I got out the 12.5 inch square and cut each out four squares and was left with these

I love it!  It was exactly what I was trying to achieve.  After cutting the squares I was left with a pile of misshapen triangles.  So I got out my smaller 8.5 inch square and cut them into 1/2 square triangles and ended up with these

I will probably play a little with the combinations of triangles.  I think I may float the large and one small on the front in the dogwood gray and no border probably a scrappy binding.  And put the other small on the back with a medium blue from my stash.

Keep dreaming...Colleen
Ive been reorganizing my still is not neat enough!
