Charm Square Zig Zag

A couple of months ago I spied this charm pack at Tuesday Morning.
Take a look at what it is....100 squares.
And the price?   99 cents!!!     SOLD!
 There are five different fabrics, 20 squares of each. I added 20 white squares... make a zig zag quilt top! This one is constructed using half-square triangles.
 Size: 42"x50"
It will be another donation quilt after it gets quilted.

On Friday the third block in the Virtual Quilting Bee was posted. 
Here is mine!
I was afraid the yellow would be over powering, so I added two other very bright solids and I think the yellow fades into the background.


And how about a few last patriotic blocks?! I was thinking of making this block for the exchange, but I struggled with getting it up to a 12.5" square. These are just shy of that size, so I will keep these to put into my own sampler quilts.
These little pinwheels are 4.5". I made five of each one, and sent four of each along with the exchange blocks. I will get 24 different pinwheels back!
Enough with the patriotic already! I don't think I will do anything more red, white, and blue until the end of May, when my exchange blocks come back in the mail!
