Half Square Triangle Quilt...

We have fallen in love with the Mooshka fabric here at the Parish! I made a little quilt and kitty from the panel awhile back and now I have finished the top for my girl's quilt to match. It goes together so fast and it's such 'happy' fabric you'll need to make one of your own! Here's what I did...

For this project I used:

12 1/3 yard cuts to make my half square triangle
1/2 yard for the inner border
7/8 yard for the outer border

Once I pressed all my fabrics I cut 108 5" squares. I then mixed up my fabrics and placed them right sides together marked them, sewed them and cut them to make the half square triangle.

I love this little tool. It's called a Quick Quarter. You place it on your square like so, and then draw on each side. Sew on those line and then cut your triangles apart and you have a half square triangle.

Once you get them all sewn then you just place your ruler 1/4" line on the stitched line and cut down the center and you will have a perfect 1/4" seam allowance.

Then just press open! Then I squared up my units to 4 1/2" blocks and randomly sewed them together. It was really random, but if you're not comfortable with that you can use a design wall and lay them out.

Once I sewed my strips together I then began to put the quilt together.

Then I added a cut 3" border and a cut 5" border and I was done! 

Come in to the shop and check it out and make one of your own! Happy stitching and may your bobbin always be full!


  1. Do you have any of this fabric left in your store? Or the panel? I am a retired teacher and our quilt guild has made quilts that match storybooks to loan out to local teachers. I'd love to make this for our guild's collection.

    1. We are out of the panel, but we do have several of the other fabrics. Stop in and we can help you.
