Video tutorial: Half and Half Square Triangle block

How to make a scrappy half and half square triangle (HST) block

Tip

While I chose to use solids for the strips of fabric, this block may work better with scrappy print fabrics where the strips may not be so obviously mismatched on some of the quilt designs.

Materials

  • Ten 10 inch x 1 1/2 inch strips in assorted prints or colours (the scrappier the better)
  • One 10 inch square piece of fabric

Block pieces

The tutorial produces the next 4 pieces that can be assembled into different layouts to make different quilt designs:
