With Christmas right around the corner, I thought maybe a pillow would be nice using her Garland pattern. I used Alyce's tutorial for creating eight half square triangles at a time.
Rather than drawing the lines on the diagonal, I find it easier to use the Fons and Porter's Quarter Inch Seam Marker and a hera maker. Since I needed 12 HSTs, I marked two squares.

Rather than using just two fabrics, I used two squares of chartreuse and two different prints from Slow and Steady by Tula Pink for Free Spirit Fabrics.
Here's some of the HSTs after they were trimmed. I wonder if I can get a pillow made before Christmas.
