Fabulous - what a great selection; a project for everyone. Thanks so much; there are a few I'll need to sew. You guys really go the extra mile!

I read the pattern for the Color of My Heart quilt, and I don't think you end up with 5" square half square triangle blocks when you start with 5" squares sewn diagonally. Wouldn't you then have to trim all the squares that are not HSTs down to 4.5" to match the size of the HSTs?

Karen, They would be 5". You are actually stitching on the diagonal line, not 1/4" away.
