Half square triangles quilt

I've been commissioned to make a king size quilt out of upcycled men's shirts. I've worked out that I'm going to need 800 half square triangles to make up 400 4" squares. It's looking good but the cutting out is a killer! Luckily I have my trusted Sizzix Big Shot to hand, with the ability to cut 12 HST in one go.

I seriously underestimated how much fabric I would need so had to panic order some more yesterday. Luckily one of my favourite online shops Plushaddict had some great shirt fabrics in stock. I'm just waiting for them to arrive and then back to more cutting. I've just counted my triangles and there's 469 so quite a way to go yet!
