Foolproof Patterns and Simple Techniques from Basic Blocks
The half-square triangle—or ‘HST’ for short—is possibly a quilter’s most versatile piecing shape, with a ton of design possibilities for a new look each time. Patchwork Essentials: The Half-Square Triangle is an essential pattern and inspiration book for the beginner through intermediate sewist. Several construction methods are included so you are sure to find your favorite one. The book is divided into five easy to follow sections each with it's own customized Workshop: Color Emphasis, Relative Scale, Patchwork Play and Block Party - a detailed chapter featuring 60, 13" HST block designs--and Tools & Quilting Basics. There is even a fun Quilt Coloring Book section for each of the 12 original designs from Jeni so that you can play with as many color and fabric combinations as you like before you piece your project.
Ready to get started? Grab your colored pencils and inspiration fabrics, because Jeni includes a coloring book page to let you sketch out your own designs for all 12 patterns.
In the first Workshop, you and Jeni apply color theory to make fabric combinations that pop. In Workshop #2, you practice three HST piecing methods and use her genius cutting menu to create any size HST you want. No calculations—it’s a math-free zone!
As fellow patchwork lovers, you and Jeni use scraps to build half-square triangles into Workshop #3’s patterns. Then you and Jeni have a block party in Workshop #4, using the final 3 patterns to mix and match HST blocks into custom designs. The bonus is a gallery of 60 block variations where you’ll find new inspiration every time you pick up this book.
With quick and easy designs or more detailed work, you will be eager to make one or all of these beautiful projects and embrace the half-square triangle as your favorite go-to essential block.
