Color Dive Half-Square Triangle Quilt
Intermediate | 30 min 39 sec
In this gorgeous, color-filled class, Anna shows quilters how to make a vibrant quilt using half-square triangles and squares. This is a perfect class for combining scraps of fabric from your stash. Anna begins by walking quilters through the process of sorting their fabrics into color groups, and from there she demonstrates how to cut and piece the squares and half-square triangles. The real fun begins when Anna goes to the design wall to lay out all of the pieces—when assembled, the half-square triangles come together to create blocks of color that dive right down the center of the quilt. While the project involves a lot of patchwork, the cutting and piecing are easy and the process of sorting colors is pure fun.

  • 8-10 fat quarters in the 5 color categories (40 total) as outlined in the PDF below (She encourages you to mine your stash!)
