Four patches are one of the most useful building blocks of quilting! They can be combined with nearly any other building block and also look fantastic on their own. This speedy method makes two four-patches at one time.
Hello, Bakers! I am here today to discuss quarter square triangles and show you two ways to construct this building block. Adding the quarter square triangle to your quilting repertoire opens up some fun piecing possibilities. One step more advanced than the ubiquitous half square triangle, the quarter square triangle (commonly abbreviated QST) consists of four right triangles that form a square.
Welcome to another Building Blocks tutorial! I’m Nicola Dodd from CakeStand Quilts and I’m so happy to be back at the Bake Shop to help you cook up some Half Rectangle Triangles.
I’m a huge fan of the Half Rectangle Triangle (lets call them HRTs or this will be a really long post!) as they add so much movement and excitement to a quilt. They are usually made with templates, but if you don’t want to invest in special rulers, or the idea of Foundation Paper Piecing brings a tear to your eye, I have two simple techniques that both use a tool you will already have: your ruler!

Hi, Everyone! It’s Jessica Dayon back in the Bake Shop with you today to share with you how I make 4 at a time flying geese. When I am learning how to make basic quilting blocks, I like to try a few different ways and practice each of them. I think that its good to know all the different ways that you can make one block. This is because one way can work best in different situations. If you are comfortable making it multiple ways, you can pick which way will suit you best each time you make the block. There are three ways to make flying geese blocks: 1- with triangles, 2- the stitch and flip method (that uses corner square triangles), and 3- 4 at a time, no waste flying geese. Today we are focusing on the 4 at a time, no waste method. Let’s dive in!
Hi fellow bakers! This is Mona from Kentucky Whittaker Creations. I’m glad to be back on Moda Bake Shop to share a fun technique with you.
I am not a fan of cutting individual pieces for a project. It never fails – I end up measuring incorrectly or my ruler slips or something else happens. I end up getting frustrated – and then sewing isn’t fun anymore! Because sewing is my sanity-saver and I want to enjoy what I’m doing, I’m always on the look out for new techniques to make cutting easier. This is one of those techniques!
Let’s make some half square triangles!
Hello! I’m Heather Long of Coffee and Quilts and I’m super excited to share another pattern here at Moda Bake Shop. This table runner is super versatile and works up quickly for seasonal decor or a housewarming gift. It uses one charm pack for the piecing, with enough leftovers for bonus wine glass coasters (pattern also included!)
