Sew An Edgy Twist On Half Square Triangles

Easy quilts are my go-to during the end of the year. Not only do they keep me warm for the fall and winter, but since they’re so easy, they make great gifts!

This “Simplicity II” quilt by Jordan Fabrics is one of the easiest quilts I’ve come across recently… but it’s so easy to make!


Here’s how you do it.

You will need:

  • 2 rolls of 20 piece jelly rolls
  • 5/8 yard of inner border
  • 1 1/2 yard of outer border
  • 5/8 yard binding

Creating the block is relatively simple– it involves some basic half square triangle construction, just doubled.

One triangle is made of two fabrics with a smaller triangle inside of a larger one. Then, this is mirrored on the other side, reversing the fabrics, but keeping the same shape from the other piece.

The result is a very edgy-looking block, and once you arrange the entire quilt, it creates the most unique finished product ever.

Once you get started, it’ll be done in no time at all.
