Little Half Square Triangles Quilt

I can't even remember when I started making the blocks for this quilt.  All the half square triangles (HST) are from previous quilts that would have been thrown away, each finishes at 2 inches.  This might be one of my favorite quilts I've made.
I sewed the HST into 9 patches, once I had enough I sewed them into a bigger 9 patch.
I quilted in the ditch.  That is not my favorite way quilt, but I do like that the quilting is hidden in the blocks.
 I've had this fabric for a while, from Cotton and Steel.  I love the color and love the whales.
Another yellow binding.  I'm surprised by how often I use yellow as binding.  It's not even my favorite color, but it seems to work on so many quilts.
