Getting caught up on Supernova

I've been trying to get caught up on the Supernova Quilt-a-long over at Freshly Pieced Blog. I must admit that this quilt is coming together nicer than I ever expected! I've rarely used white in my quilts(2 boys in the house, ya know), but now I'm thinking that I may have to end this aversion and start using it more! It really makes the color pop! The more I sew, the more excited I'm getting, which is good, because I've been doing a lot of sewing!
 The instructions for the quilt use all squares and trim the corners off. I decided to add an extra seam in the blocks to create what will be tons of tiny triangle squares. I'm pretty frugal, and wanted to take advantage of all of this "waste" trimmings. I can't wait to play around with them, but first I need to get a bit more caught up!!!

It's Fabric Tuesday, so I'll be linking up with Quilt Story's Fabric Tuesday as well! Come join us!

Yeah, I'm so glad you're enjoying the quilt-along! Your tip about the two seams is just awesome. I have a whole bag of freebie HSTs now, just waiting to become a pillow or something. : )
