June 23, 2016
Hello lovely quilters!
I hope that you know about our library of free quilt patterns we have on AGF website! If not, it’s time for you to check it out and choose your favorite for summer sewing.
Today I would like to feature 5 free quilt patterns that you can sew with Half Square Triangles (HST). Half square triangles are commonly used patchwork components and they are one of the most basic blocks in quilting. Most beginning quilters starts their project with HST and it gives them a great base to create a lot of different quilt blocks.
So… what exactly are half square triangles?
Half square triangle units are squares made up of two equal triangles. Each triangle occupies half of the square's space.
What’s great about HST is that you can create with them so many different quilt blocks!
Take a look at the free quilt patterns below. The possibilities are endless! You can make a quilt just with HST or incorporate them into quilt blocks with fabric strips, squares, rectangles, and other quilting techniques.
