When it comes to quilting, finding an easy pattern or a quick project can be hard. More and more quilters are opting for something intricate, but every once in a while, I want to go back to the basics.
That’s why the Herringbone quilt is something I love to go back to. If you’ve never made one of these before, it’s perhaps one of the easiest quilts you can make.
Jenny Doan from the Missouri Star Quilt Company stitches this up in a video tutorial. This block is so simple, you’ll barely need to watch it.
Quilts don’t get more easy than this. All you need to make this are colored squares and squares of background fabric (Jenny uses white).
From here, all you’re gonna do is make some half square triangles. Stack your squares on top of each other and cut along the diagonal. Mix and match the triangles to make squares. There’s your block!
To create the Herringbone, it’s all about the arrangement of those half square triangles.
With these, you’re going to use the half square triangles to form little arrows, with each side of the arrow an opposite color. Continue with this pattern until your quilt top is done!
Add some batting, some backing fabric, and any borders you’d like, and the entire quilt is done. No matter what skill level you’re at when it comes to quilting, this will be beyond easy for you.
