Basic Skills Necessary:

Pattern Description:

The many triangles in this quilt are all made from squares, using my easy Sewfasst(r) techniques, no triangle was harmed in the making of this quilt. Pieced Half Square triangles lend themselves to many design possibilities. This star is only one of them, another design is included in the pattern. Make it from scraps, all you can find, or use coordinated dark, medium and light fabrics, instructions for either are included. The pattern instructions are for a 40"x40" quilt, but the quilt can be doubled in size by simply making the Half Square Triangles larger. How to do this is included in the instructions.
