Eight Triangles

Today I tried out a design Jenny Bowker showed us in the workshop in Ballarat. Part of it involved making sets of half-square triangles, eight at a time:
You draw diagonal lines across your squares, then stitch a seam-allowance width either side of those lines. The lines both drawn and stitched might be visible in the photo if you enlarge it. Once the sewing is complete, you start cutting the square into triangles. First a "north-south" cut as in the photo, then an "east-west" one across the middle, and finally the diagonals. My rotating cutting mat came in very handy for this!
I'm happy with how they turned out. I'll show the whole thing when it is all together.
