Marianne and Mary Fons teach how to make half square triangles for friendship quilts. They show several examples of quilts made with creative triangle units that were quilted for a friendship quilt exchange. One quilt, Triangle Surprise, is featured in Love of Quilting January/February 2011. The Fons girls suggest using a design wall to lay out your ideas for everyone to see. They also use half square triangle papers to make large numbers of triangles in a short time. Bring these ideas to your quilting buddies and swap your own quilt fabric triangles to make very special friendship quilts!
