Patchwork Essentials: Block Chart + Free Settings

Wednesday, August 14, 2019

Time to share another project from my book, Patchwork Essentials: The Half-Square Triangle! You can find all the posts about Patchwork Essentials using the MY BOOK link at the top of every page, or here.

I'm going to share each quilt, in order, with the exception of a few that I've already shared. We are in the block chapter now, which is the last chapter in the book. Before I share the three quilts in this chapter, I wanted to share a little more about the block chart and the three extra quilts I made with those blocks.

For more on how the book is structured see this post.

The block chapter begins with 60 different blocks that can be made with just half-square triangles. The rest of the chapter uses blocks designs from the chart, but I wanted to make a couple of quilts with the actual blocks that I made for the block chart. So, I designed three bonus sampler quilts that use up all 60 blocks. I also wrote and shared a free tutorial for each quilt setting, which you can pair with the book!

Here are all three quilt tutorials:

Over and Above Quilt Setting Tutorial

Blockade Quilt Setting Tutorial

Interlaced Quilt Setting Tutorial
I love the way the other quilts in this chapter turned out (which I'll be sharing over the next month or so), but I wanted to be able to share some other options. Making all 60 blocks would be an excellent way to hone your half-square triangle skills, bust some of your fabric stash, and make a bunch of quilts all at the same time! Selfishly, I also wanted to use up my blocks! The half-square triangles in these blocks are also on the front cover, so these almost feel like memory quilts for me in a weird way. Plus, it was a fun challenge to use up every block.

Happy Quilting!
