I'm always looking for new ways to make quilt blocks that are fast, efficient and easy. Today, I want to share with you a wonderful way to make half-square tirangles (HST) using charm packs. You won't believe how simple this is to do. I found a tutorial from Missouri Star Quilt Company called Fast & Easy Pinwheels. I think pinwheel blocks are the cutest thing, and you can make them into many different quilt layouts.
After viewing this video I got to thinking that you could cut your squares any size you want depending on how large you want your HSTs. The next time I have to make a lot of blocks using HST, I will definitely be using this method!
Shifting from piecing to applique . . . I want to share with you block 2 for my Sarah's Revival quilt.
This one was a little more challenging than block 1, so I'm glad to have it finished.
Until next time . . .
