Mary’s Go Round Quilt

Happy Fall!  I am Barbara Esposito, The Quilted B, and it is so good to be back at the Moda Bake Shop.  This quilt block was inspired by my mom, Mary.  She was an amazing seamstress, initially out of need, but as time went on out of pure love for the craft.  She won many Blue Ribbons at our state fair over the years, and no Christmas went by without matching party dresses and PJ’s for my nieces and their dolls.

Building Blocks: Half Rectangle Triangles

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!
