I’m self taught so for a long time I had no idea how to join the ends of the binding in a neat way. Learning how to do it properly made a big difference.
Learn in one and a half minute:
This is a beginner quilt. Each block is made with 2 sets of 8 half square triangles (HST) made at once. Watch the 2 minute video tutorial on making 8 HSTs at once:
Starting squares size: 7 inch square. You will need at least four 7 inch squares for each block or more for blocks in 3 or 4 different fabrics. Each pair makes 8 HST.
Block size: 10 1/2 inch square.
Block type: 16-patch block.
Trimming half square triangles: Essential. Remember to trim off your HSTs and make sure that they are 3 inch square.
Fabric needs: I will give you the fabric needs for each block. All blocks use four 7 inch squares in different colours and combinations. More details on each tutorial. This quilt is fat quarter friendly.
Colour scheme: For better results, use high contrasting fabrics.
