Scraptastic Tuesday - Scrappy HST's

A fun QAL which I am joining in with is the Moda ABC Birthday QAL which I blogged about here .
To make many of the letters, the patterns involve sewing "Easy Corner Triangles" - for example to form the corners of the "O", "D" and "A" below. Before I trim the corners of the alphabet blocks,  I have been sewing an extra seam so that I make another little HST measuring about 2".
After making all of the letters for the alphabet, I had a pile of almost 80 leftover scrappy HST which I have now made into a panel for a tote bag.

Linking up with Scraptastic Tuesday hosted by Leanne @ She Can Quilt and Nicky @ Mrs Sew and Sew.
