There’s something so wholesome about kites. Kids and adults alike love playing with them, flying them through the air and marveling at them.
Can’t get outside because it’s cold out? Not enough wind? Don’t have a kite?
Believe it or not, there’s also another way to integrate kites into your life: quilt them! That’s right, just create some quilt blocks that resemble kites!
Jenny Doan from Missouri Star Quilt Company stitches up a kit block in one of her video tutorials, and if you know how to sew a half square triangle, you can sew up these kites.
Wanna know how to make it yourself? Here’s how.
Easy As Pie
This block is a little different from the others you’ve done in the past in that it’s a little longer and more offset. It’s just as simple as any other block made from half square triangles!
You’ll just need to make two separate types of blocks. One that’s a little lengthier, and one that’s a classic square. Simple! 4 blocks total forms a kite, and a ton of kites together form the gorgeous quilt top.
Add some borders if you’d like, a little batting, and some backing fabric, and you’ve got an adorable summery quilt that will impress all of your friends!
