Tiny Tuesday - Split 16 Patch

 Start with an assortment of squares in dark and light.  I had a stack of 2 inch squares which then got trimmed down eventually to 1 5/8 inches.  You will need 10 each of dark and light.
 I usually make half square triangles two at a time by drawing a line down the middle and sewing on either side.  In this case I wanted a variety of HST units and so I sewed directly on the drawn line.
 Make 4 of these HST units.  Press the top dark triangle open on each one.  .
 Now lift up the top triangle...
 ...and trim away the waste triangle below.
 Now you can square up your HST units as well as your plain squares to 1 5/8 inches each.
 Arrange in a 4 by 4 grid and sew them all together.
There you go.  Lots of little bits put to good use.  
Just one more Tiny Tuesday block to go!  Looking forward to Tuesday.
