  60. thanks so much sewmamasew & also everyones kind comments! I should note that I made this quilt using flying geese units (3 individual triangles), not half square triangles or a flying geese ruler. It’s WAY easier & precise to use those two methods, so if anyone is thinking about making a similar quilt, half square triangles would be my choice if I were to do it again! 🙂 thanks again!
