How to Make an Amish Triangle Quilt

Fons & Porter's Love of Quilting | 1700 Series | Episode 1701

Marianne and Mary Fons show you how to make an Amish triangle quilt and how to enlarge the patchwork quilt pattern. The half square triangle pattern is typically 3 inches in length for a quilt but can be made larger in a quilt. Since Marianne wanted a larger quilt with this design, she cut her quilt fabric into 4 inch half square triangles. Don’t let the math overwhelm you. The Half and Quarter ruler makes cutting triangles easy.
