How to Make Half Square Triangles for Quilts

Fons & Porter's Love of Quilting | 1200 Series | Episode 1209

On this program we’re working on a quilt with fabrics that were inspired by colonial Williamsburg. This is a traditional styled quilt using reproduction fabrics and that’s the style that we like because it stands the test of time.

In this episode we’ll show you how to make half square triangles using two different tools, the half and quarter ruler and the quarter inch seam marker. We will also show you how to use the triangle trimmers to make more accurate patchwork, and how to construct a basket block.

The featured quilt, Williamsburg Basket, is found in the September/October 2008 issue of Love of Quilting.
