025 Half Rectangle Triangles

I was intrigued and inspired by this striking quilt, but I wanted a rectangular quilt....so it was necessary to learn how to make HRT (half rectangle triangle).
My numbered puzzle! 

Once I got the hang of it, they were easy enough.... one thing I needed to remember was that there are 2 different directions of the HRT....which can't be interchanged.

 

I was pleased with how it turned out, and somehow I didn't take a picture of the back (can't believe that) so am hoping the recipient will take a few pictures for me.

  4. Aye Carumba! Your quilt is bursting with color off the page!
    Wow, it's just amazing to me how you found inspiration and then went with your gut--so courageous. The red binding really sets the whole thing off!
    :O)
