The Half-Square Triangle
The half-square triangle-or 'HST' for short- is a quilter's most versatile shape, with a ton of design possibilities for a new look each time.
Fabric designer and pattern maker Jeni Baker takes the math of constructing these blocks by providing helpful cutting menus to create any size HST you may ever need using each of her three piecing methods. No calculations-it's a math-free zone! She then builds on the design through 12 beautiful step-by-stem HST projects.
As fellow patchwork lovers, you and Jeni use the Workshops includes in each chapter to apply color theory to make fabric combinations that pop, practice resizing any blocks, and use the final 3 patterns to mix and match your favorite HST blocks into custom designs. The bonus is a fallacy of 60 block variations where you'll find new inspiration every time you pick this book up.
Ready to get started? Gram a colored pencil and inspiration fabrics, because Jeni includes a coloring book page to let you sketch out your own designs for all 12 patterns.
This powerhouse book has something for everyone-it's easy, fun and inspiring HST patchwork for all tastes.
