About This Tutorial

Finished Size: 80" x 80"

It's true, Natalie's new quilt is a beauty. But if you take a closer look, you will find nothing but easy half-square triangles! Half-Square Triangle Surprise combines three great blocks: the envelope or Love Note block, the chevron block and the Emerald Isle or diamond block—all made with HSTs. Together they form dazzling stars, dynamic diamonds, and a candy-stripe border. This quilt is made with the Easy 8 method and precut layer cake squares from Heirloom Red by My Mind's Eye for Riley Blake.
