I’ve seen a plethora of unique twists on a plain half square triangle quilt, but this is definitely the most unique of them all. It’s called the “waves” quilt, and it’s gorgeous.
This pattern comes from Jenny Doan at Missouri Star Quilt Company, and as per usual, it’s simply perfection. You’re going to love making this, guaranteed.
Wanna make it yourself? I don’t blame you. Here’s how. First, you’ll need to gather your supplies.
Here’s what you’ll need to make this adorable quilt:
Believe it or not, making this quilt is actually incredibly simple. Each block is made up of four smaller blocks: 2 half square triangles, and 2 blocks that are a variation of that.
The two blocks that aren’t half square triangles are actually a curved version of the half square triangle. Basically all you’ll be doing is cutting a semicircle instead of a triangle.
Piece it together with a bit of background fabric that will turn that semicircle into a square. Do this twice to form two of these, and place them at adjacent corners.
Do the same with the half square triangles and the other two corners. Sew this up, and you have a finished block!
Stitch these blocks together with your border(s), batting, backing, and any free motion, and you’ve got a completely finished quilt. That was easy, wasn’t it?
