How about this? This uses 2 inch half square triangles...just the size you get when making those afore mentioned stars. This is a free pattern, from Quiltville!!! Please see
And while you are there, Bonnie has so graciously posted many, many free quilt patterns. Please see her blog...and if you are a scrappy quilter, Bonnie has written many, many books, using all those pretty scraps you just can't get rid of!!
What other ideas do you have for a 1/2 square triangle quilt??
