Meadow Mystery Quilt Along 2016: Half Square Triangles and Block 6

This month's Meadow Mystery Quilt Along instructions involved lots of half square triangles...56 (not that I wasn't counting!!).  Luckily the instructions included the option to oversize them and then trim them down to the 4.5" size needed.  Once they were complete, one set was used to assemble Block 6.  The Alison Glass purple batik I chose has a gradated density of floral motifs across the width of fabric.  I sorted the pieced HSTs accordingly and placed the most dense pink/orange/yellow flowers towards the large orange triangle with the all purple swatches at the opposite corner.  
Block 6

I am pretty excited to have four finished blocks after the first month of piecing.  And if this is Block 6, we will have at least 5 other blocks to piece in the coming months.  Looking forward to seeing what October's instructions will reveal...

    1. Thanks Paige--I was pretty excited to incorporate the fabric design into my blocks. Not entirely sure what the end result will yield, but these little details will add to its character.
