Half Square Triangle Quilt - Triangle Awesomeness!
I am in love with my crazy colour combination, and I really like that larger shapes emerge within the rows, and it has not been too stressful, this HST quilt of mine. Here is a little lesson in how you get started:
1. Four half square triangles.
2. Become two squares.
3. The two squares (right sides together) and pinned...
4....are sewn together.
5. And become a rectangle..
6. Don't forget to press the seams open with an iron as you go.
7. Add a square at a time until you get a row. Create the following row and sew together.
The completed patchwork was not big enough to create a quilt in its own right, so with the remaining white fabric, I created a border. With the added border, the quilt was 135 x 100cm, which is just the right size for throwing over someone who is feeling poorly on the couch, or wrapping round you when the sun goes down on a summer evening.
If you want to see the planning stage of this quilt, see here. So, how do you feel about having a go now?
