Playtime with Half Square triangles and Big Sur

 You see I make mention of my latest upgrade on my Mac
to Big Sur, these are early days and I'm  still finding my way
around the new system, there may be a few hiccups along the way
so fingers crossed I can actually produce a reasonable post!

In an earlier post I had this photo below

a Churn Dash cut in two halves  ( I had lots of others to cut, different fabrics)
and was wondering what on earth
to do with them.
said they would make 'pretty cool half square triangles'
and just cut them up,  armed with ruler and rotary cutter I did just that.
Each HST you see above yields cut into four smaller HSTs giving me eight in total and decided it was playtime.

Here is the result as of yesterday

I used two shades of violet/purple as the solid half.
NOTE yes I do have the letter m all on it's own and haven't time to
go back and redo, reasons below.

I must be on a purple kick as I have backing fabric for eldest sons quilt

and in sorting through older fabrics found this one below,
 if memory serves me correctly
this is an early KF fabric - Chard

I love this one!!

I'm rushing to get this post written as I am heading off to the hospital shortly to the
pacemaker clinic as there is a possibility that my battery is discharging quickly
and causing real problems - I am pacemaker dependent and without it
there is only one outcome!!
They are also checking me out in case I have had a heart attack, oh and my doctor
thinks I may have become diabetic, lots to choose from here, so much fun!
No heart attack, pacer battery OK - Hooray!!
On with quilting.

All for now but here is a beautiful cheery cyclamen sitting my bedroom

and  new fabric received a few days ago

I'm surprised you could write the beginning of your post with such a weight hanging over you, but I'm thrilled that with the positive outcome from your hospital visit. Keep safe and quilt on. The HSTs look great.

I hope the triangle paly eased your mind until the doctors could do so. Glad all is well.

Oh, I love that Cyclamen, what a beautiful color. My mother used to grow them but I had only seen white flowers.

I thought there was something wrong with my pacemaker too but all is well. 2-3 years left on the battery. I'm glad you checked out OK.

Love the triangle blocks. So glad you are OK. See you Saturday?

I love the crumb blocks you made from Churn Dashes. With the purples, it reminds me of my Square Deal quilt. Such lovely combinations of prints and solids.
I'm glad your heart is beating well.
