What you need.
- 1 piece of light fabric measuring 8″ x 8″
- 1 piece of dark fabric measuring 8″ x 8″
- 4 pieces of the light fabric measuring 5″ x 5″
- 4 pieces of contrast fabric measuring 5″ x 5″
First, we make the large half-square triangles.
We are making 4 half square triangles so we place our light fabric on top of the dark fabric and sew a ¼” seam around the edge of the square.
- Now cut across the square on both diagonals to get 4 half square triangles.
- Press the seams on each hst to the dark side and trim each hst to 5″.
Next, we make the small half square triangles.
- Draw a line on both diagonals. Sew ¼” down either side of the drawn lines.
- Place your ruler at the halfway mark of the square. My square was 5″ so I line up the ruler at 2½” and cut.
- Turn your square and do the same again. Now cut down both diagonal lines. This gives you 8 half square triangles.
- Press each triangle with the seam to the dark side and trim to 2″.
Lay out the pieces to form the pattern that you desire. Take your time to play and have a bit of fun with this one as there are so many variations that you can do.
