How to Sew a "Triangles" Quilt Block Tutorial

I wish Summer never had to end, lucky I live in Florida so technically it feels like Summer all year round. Lately, I have been sewing with Katarina Roccella’s new fabrics called Floralish. Which I think are perfect summertime prints with delectable fruits and fantastic floral designs.  The Rayon print offered in this collection is called "Poppy Memories” has just made it to my top three favorite rayon prints from AGF! Check out my dress in the video below. I also sewed up the “Triangles” quilt block where I made half-square triangles using the four at a time method and flying geese using the no-waste method.

What’s your favorite way to make HST’s and flying geese? I am so delighted with my finished block, I am drooling over the yummy saturated colors and fussy cut watermelon center!

Happy Sewing,

Summer Florals & Fruits: Floralish by Katarina Roccella

"Summer is my favorite season of the year, when nature delivers the most beautiful flowers and fruits of the season. Inspired by summery delights and my favorite painting technique-watercolor, I created this summery collection. Some prints were also part of my “Lavish” collection, when I first submitted it several years ago, so Floralish can also be seen as its sequel." - Katarina Roccella
