Have you been following along with our Deer Quilt Sew-Along with Luke Haynes? We’d love to see YOUR deer quilts!
I have been making quilts for 10 years and only in the past few have been learning anything about traditional patterns. I want to show you how I sew half square triangles and the methods [and pitfalls] of how to put them together into just one of the myriad of possible blocks using them.
Hexagons are “in” now, so I designed a block in the CutWork software that makes a small grandmother’s flower garden flower in just two pieces. When it is embroidered you can’t tell it’s not made from individual hexagons like a traditional block!
I guess it’s true. All memories are colored the way we’d most like to remember them. Here I’ve applied “color-drenched lenses” to revisit a vintage family photo, then incorporated the resulting images into patchwork pillows.
Have you noticed the half square triangle trend in quilting? Part of the popularity of the half square triangle block is the versatility and endless design possibilities with this block. We’ll show you a few different quilts made with half square triangles and share some easy tutorials!
