This delightful easy-to-make quilt will have you checking your stash and pre-cuts.
This modern quilt is, like most modern quilts, one that combines a simple shape with lots of background so that the beauty of the fabrics are highlighted.
Made with half-square triangles and strips it’s really easy and the Thangles company have put together a pattern, which comes complete with the papers, so that you can make the half-square triangle units quickly and more importantly accurately. This pattern is available in the Shop
The papers can be used with precuts – charm packs at 5″ or you could cut up your layer cake (oh no do I hear you say?!?!)
Valerie used a charm pack of 20 squares, which gave her 40 little units – so the quilt is reasonably small: but here it is all finished and quilted using the walking foot and simple straight lines.
If you want to make your own from stash, then you can use the method where you sew either side of a diagonal line that is drawn on the back on the lighter pair of fabrics: click here to learn more about Fast and accurate halfsquare triangles.
