Charity quilt #5 with overdyed fabric - Opposing Triangles

I've written 4 previous posts about the quilts that I made with overdyed fabric.  Bonnie Keller gave me two huge boxes of old fabric that she wasn't going to use, and I overdyed a lot of it.  I saw a picture of this quilt on Pinterest and used it for the inspiration for this quilt.  

It's 65" x 70", which is the size that our charity group likes to work with.  Mostly made with half square triangles, it also includes some longer strips of the background fabric.    Since I wanted to alternate yellow with the gray background, I made 150 half square triangles, pairing the overdyed fabric with the background as follows:

From the yellow:  50 (from 25 @ 6" squares of both colors)

From the light gray:  46 (from 23 @ 6" squares of both colors)

From the medium gray:  28 (from 14 @ 6" squares of both colors)

From the darkest gray: 26 (from 13 @ 6" squares of both colors) and  2 strips at 5-1/2" x 35-1/2"; 2 strips at 5-1/2" x 25-1/2"; 2 strips at 5-1/2" x 15-1/2"; and 2 each 5-1/2 x 5-1/2" squares.


I hope you like it!
