Skill Level:

intermediate skill level requirement Advanced

Basic Skills Necessary:

  • Search through your scraps to find those that will pop when put together
  • Rotary cutting
  • Use a 60 degree line on a ruler to cut and trim

Pattern Description:

Triangles are everywhere these days, but most designers aren't crazy enough to want to piece the actual triangle block. I am not most designers. To me, nothing is more exciting than a pieced block of any shape, and these triangles are no exception. I love how they came together, I love the setting that revealed itself to me as I went along, and I really just love that the cover quilt was yet another successful group quilt project for EvaPaige Quilt Designs, my pattern company.

Like its big sister pattern "Kickin' Stash", "Taking Names" can be made either totally scrappy or a little bit more planned scrappy.

The setting on the cover is really just the beginning of what this pattern can do; once you make the block, I know you will find dozens of new settings that make it even more fantastic!

Sizing / Finished Measurements:

  • Three sizes, Baby 46" x 60", Twin 63" x 92", and Queen 80" x 92"


  • Ruler with a 60 degree line
  • Varying amounts of scrap and background fabrics (see pattern supply list)

You Will Also Need:

  • Quarter inch foot for your sewing machine is nice to have, although optional
  • Willingness to try something new - pieced triangles!
