Carpenter’s Wheel Quilt-Along

When I sat down to start sewing the pieces together on the Carpenter’s Wheel I discovered a huge burr in the needle hole! And, after running around town, I couldn’t find a file small enough to file out the burr. So I dug out my Featherweight to continue sewing while I wait for a new needle plate to arrive. Luckily, my needle plate is not as expensive as some! Shakespeare in the Park. And it's done!

Easy Triangle Quilting Patterns

Half-square triangles, also known as isosceles right triangles, tessellate perfectly and can be arranged to create stars, flowers, pinwheels, stripes, diamonds, diagonals, animal shapes, and much more. It's possible to sew a quilt using nothing but equal sized half-square triangles, which means you can cut your triangular patches in bulk to save time. Below are galleries of patterns using half-square triangles to give you some idea of the types of quilt designs that are possible.

Cathedral Window Quilt Tutorial

The Origami-like folding of fabric, the jewel like tones of the "windows", the layers of fabric and stitching - all combine to create an amazing, complex looking quilt. The reality is that the process is not that hard, and with a little learning and patience, you can do it quite easily. The Cathedral Window quilt is a quilt-as-you-go project, meaning that there is no backing or quilting to be done once you have finished the quilt top. The quilt simply grows and grows as you make it, and once you've done enough squares to be satisfied, it's done. Brilliant. First, a word about materials. October Show and Tell.

April 9, 2013 How often have you used a pattern that has directions for cutting out individual triangles from your fabrics for quilting to make half-square triangles? Some patterns require you to cut hundreds of these – I don’t know about you, but that’s not my favorite thing to do. I’m all for short cuts – if possible! However, when using a pattern, I do advise you to follow directions. If you are attempting to downsize your stash of fabrics for quilting, half-square triangles are a great thing to make.
