May 2017 - triangle time again!

I'm sorry but I don't know the name of this block. It was part of a quilt-along which Jeni Baker, of incolororder, ran in 2012.  Pop over to her site/blog here and have a read and a peep. You will not be disappointed!!!  I have Jeni's HST book and love it!!!

This pattern uses half-square triangles which are made by sewing together one white square and one coloured square using one of these methods:
  • The traditional method which is here (using 4"squares) or 
  • The alternative method which you can find on Sometimes Crafter's tutorial here (using 6" squares) 
The tutorial with all the measurements to make the block is here - it's the July Block

Whichever method you choose don't forget to trim your HSTs to 3 1/2"square before sewing them together 

Jeni uses 4 different fabrics plus a white background and we would like our blocks made in the same way.  We would like the background to be white or white on white and the coloured fabrics to be bright and modern, please, keeping the colour within the block from a similar colour group.

We don't need the blocks until just before we next meet on 10th if we had them by 8th June that would be fab.

Thanks in advance for your loyal support.  It is much appreciated.  I know Ros just loves getting her happy mail and I love getting the photographs of them when they arrive.

I hope you enjoy making your half-square triangles and if you've any questions please get in touch on

Happy Sewing
