Half Square Triangles Block of the Month

I have finally started on In Color Order BOM.  All the blocks are done in half square triangles which is a different way for doing some of the blocks.  When you see the pictures you will understand what I mean.

I am not going to do this one as a scrappy quilt.  I chose yardage from my stash and added a few more colours to add a bit of interest.  I am going to stick to the three colours and the background whenever possible and add in different fabric if needed.

So I am going to use the 2 blues
and the gold and
white as background and then
the orange and green if
another colour is needed.

Block # 1

I would normally make this block
using flying geese
and a square in a square
in the middle.
Half-square triangles changes the block.

Block #2

When I look at this block I see
flying geese, but
it is made entirely of half-square triangles.

This is going to be a fun BOM to do.  I hope I have enough different fabric to make it right.
