Schnitzel & Boo: Tutorial: This Way That Way Quilt {a half rectangle triangle pattern}

oh, how I long to learn how to quilt... but this picture? It scares the ever-living bejeepers out of me! Not sure I am quilt-ready, lol!

1/4 yard = 8 CS 1 Fat Quarter = 12 CS 3/8 yard = 16 CS 1/2 yard = 24 CS 5/8 yard = 32 CS 3/4 yard = 40 CS 7/8 yard = 48 CS 1 yard = 56 CS *based on standard cotton print fabric that is about 42" wide. 2 5" squares --> 2 HSTs 10 x 12 HSTs = 120 = 40in X 48in.

HST technique. Begin with 2 squares of fabric and end with 4 squares of half square triangles. Plus an extra step to make many unique blocks.

To create a half square triangle {HST}, you start with {2} squares of the same size. One square is typically a ‘neutral or solid’ while the other square is a print. Here I’ve shown you {4} squares because that is how many you need to start with to end up with {1} block. My squares are each 3×3 and will create a finished block of approx. 5″ {after it is ‘squared’ up}.

Just love this line of fabric - just ordered MORE to make my second quilt from it!
