I have been working on the 1 1/2" half square triangles, all 180 of them, for my Little Jo's Club, "Arlington" quilt.  I even recruited Gregg's help.  He helped me draw the diagonal line across about half of the 2" squares needed to make the  1 1/2" half square triangles and then he helped me "finger press" the seams open on about 1/3 of the squares so they would be easier and quicker to press open.   On projects this small, I prefer to press the seems open to reduce the bulk.  It take a lot longer though.

  This is a picture of the pattern.  I am making mine.... come on you can guess.... red, white (well cream), and blue.  The background blue in the picture is red in my quilt, and the brown pinwheels are navy blue.  

  And here are all 180 - 1 1/2"  half square triangles paired up in block sets.  Yeah, I know it's suppose to be scrappy and it is but I had to plan it out just a little (okay, maybe a lot!). 
The rest of the quilt should go together pretty quickly, even though it is small.  I have everything else cut out and ready to set together.  But that will have to wait, I'm off to a quick trip to Missouri for a graduation.
