Festival of Half Square Triangles.....

Have you seen this festival?  I do love me some half square triangles.  Pop over and see all the fun.  

I was in the middle of this quilt top anyway, so I hurried up and finished in time to enter.
It's a big baby quilt, small twin size.  I didn't get time to quilt it yet, but making the top is always my favorite part anyway.

I'm calling it friendship zag.  It's traditional friendship star blocks, with 1/2 square triangles in the corners.  Each full block finishes at 9".  I set it in a brick type setting, which led to 1/2 stars on every other row end, and that secondary zig-zag pattern across the quilt. 


The weather wasn't great today, so the colors are a bit dim, but the oranges are so bright in real life. 
I managed to take pictures along the way, so if there's any interest in a tutorial, let me know.  I'll leave you with a few close-ups....
