These were all single HST's. Generally I find four the most useful number to have. I can turn them into Shoo-fly or Churn Dash blocks pretty much without thinking anymore. The method I use most often for making HST's creates pairs so having single ones is an anomaly. This 8" potholder top nearly eliminated the short stack that had accumulated.
I've also been adding to my scrappy armada.
Did you notice my prison ship? ;- )
I'm indulging in the colors I like the most with these ships too, not just trying to use up scraps that have been around forever.

Although some of them have been around forever! The hull and sails of this boat are what's left of an early Patrick Lose print.
I've always loved his whimsical spin on quilting prints.
There are more scrappy projects to see over at Tall Tales from Chiconia. Go have a look!
