Yellow & Grey Flying Geese Quilt - Progress

Once you have all the half square triangles that you need, it's time to assemble them into a quilt top! You can save yourself a lot of time by pre-arranging the quilt squares on the floor and then sort of mass-sewing them together without cutting the threads or ironing until you finish a whole row. It takes a pinch of planning, as described below, but it really did save me bunch of time when assembling my Flying Geese Throw.
