Wednesdays with Precuts

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 . . .
