Cheryl's Half-Square Triangles

Cheryl has been working on these half-square triangle units for a long time.  She brought me this quilt as it was larger than she wanted to quilt herself. 

We decided on the baptist fan pantograph, as the quilt has quite a traditional feel to it. This quilt was lovely to work with, flat and square, which is hard to achieve with 1) all HST (half-square triangle) units and 2) pieced border.

 The baptist fan added some lovely curved texture to all those triangles.

 I forget if Cheryl said this was a kit or just a pattern she had bought, but she had enough HST units left over to make 3 small lap quilts!!

And these musical angels grace the back of the quilt.
