Quarter Square Triangles

There are some things in this life that you mean to learn, but don’t, and the day you finally do, you wonder how you ever lived without them. So, I am happy to report, I have learned how to make quarter-square triangles. How did I live without these? They look so cool…Anyway, if you can’t tell, I really like quarter-square triangles now. I love how simple they are. I find them satisfying to make (also, I use the speed piecing technique, which just makes them better).

So, that’s the third finished 12″ block that I’ve made for Texas stars. Wait? What 3?????

Yep, three. I was a slacker and forgot to post the second block. So I’ll do that thing now.

I am pleased with the progress. I have to say, it’s taking a lot of conscious thought to make the quilt properly masculine and not-flowery. I’m not accustomed to making quilts in that sort of style, at all, but we all need to stretch ourselves, right?

  1. I’m so envious that you and your mom sew together. I would love to be there sewing, too! These blocks are wonderful. I would love to make an entire quilt out of the third block. It would do well for a leader-ender, but all my leader-enders are planned for this year already! Maybe after Irish Stars. You should have your own QAL here! Say …. next fall? LOL But you will probably be doing other things then.
