Shoo Fly Blocks

Shoo Fly block
Quilt of Valor # 78 - Roundabout resulted in a considerable number of large "waste" half-square triangles (HSTs). Since I recently made a lot of star blocks from the smaller HSTs from Whirligig, I made some Shoo Fly blocks to shake things up a bit.

I only needed to cut the white solid squares, as the center squares were already cut and in the 4-inch scrap bin. Once sewed together into the quilt top, the blocks will measure or finish at 10.5 inches.

Thirty Shoo Fly blocks were made from the HST scraps - enough for another Quilt of Valor.
