Friday Freebie - Half Charmed.

It's finally FRIDAY!!

You made it! SO let's celebrate with a brand new Simply Series I have started:

Friday Freebie.

So what is Friday Freebie? On a Friday, I release a new quilt pattern tutorial. A little while back I surveyed people to see if they would rather have a tutorial or a pattern for some quilts I have made in the past (and future). There was a pretty even split, so I decided - why not do a mix of both.

So Friday Freebies are a mix of a tutorial that will be shared on my blog, along with a pdf pattern. So, if you just want to skip straight to the pattern - you can! If you want a little more explanation, tips and tricks (great for beginners) - you can!

Oh, did I mention - it's FREE! The pattern, the tutorial - ALL of it!

So first up in the Friday Freebie line up - Half Charmed.

This is a simple half-squared triangle quilt that is my go to for baby gifts. It's quick and easy and a great way to practice your skills with this basic block.

In this pattern I have included the math for FOUR different sizes of quilts. You can use precuts, yardage or pull from those scraps!

Half - Square Triangles, known as HSTs in the quilting world, are one of my favorite blocks. They are a reoccurring theme in many of my quilts.

What tools do you need? Well fabric, a sewing machine, rotary cutter and a ruler. I highly recommend a BlocLoc ruler. They have a groove down the ruler that "grabs" your seam line and helps keep your ruler from slipping when trimming up your blocks. It's in my top 5 of must have tools!

So many different ways to make them 1, 2, 4 or even 8 at a time! For this pattern, I stick with 2 at a time. This is perfect for using charm packs (aka precut 5 in squares).

It really is just as easy as it looks! Beginner or advanced quilter - this is a block for everyone!

For this particular quilt I used Tucker Prairie by 1 Canoe 2 for Moda and Bella Solids in Bleached White by Moda (9900 98). you really can't go wrong with 1 Canoe 2 - gorgeous prints! This crib quilt only used 1 Print charm pack and 1 solid charm pack! Easy peasy!

Go grab your copy of Half - Charmed and lets see those HSTs!
