  • (1) 9” square, cut on the diagonal
  • (8) 3” squares
  • (4) triangles cut from Template 1

Template can be found in Printer Friendly file below.

Mark the wrong side of each Fabric A 3” square with a diagonal pencil line. Place right sides together with Fabric B 3” square. Sew ¼” away from each side of the marked line. Cut apart on the pencil line and press to the darker fabric. Trim to 2½” square. Repeat to make a total of (15) Fabric A + Fabric B half square triangles.

Join HST blocks in rows as shown. Add triangles to the end of rows as shown. Press rows in alternate directions so the seams nest. Join rows together.

Assemble Block – Sew Fabric A and B triangles to the sides of the center unit. Press.
This block measures 12.5” x 12.5” unfinished.

This block finishes at 12″ x 12″.

    Oda May, I have found the template for the triangles is too small. I ended up cutting 2 7/8″ squares on the diagonal and that worked perfectly. Love this block! Thanks so much for this block and for the sew along. I’ve loved every block and every minute.

      For those of you who are having trouble with the template – please try saving the PDF to your computer before you print it. When you print directly from a web browser, the content is often shrunken down.
