Split Triangle Row Quilt (Step 2)



 Please start here at Step 1 to produce your Split Triangle Rows,
using 96 HST blocks. 


To create the layout as described here you will require setting rectangles.

Cut:
2 - 2  1/4" x 8 1/2" background fabric.
7 - 4" x 8 1/2" background fabric.




Using your setting rectangles, layout and construct your top as in the following photos.  






This is long and narrow (approximately 27" x 54") and will be used as a table topper.  I will add 5" borders once my sewing room is back in order from water damage this summer :( 

The finished top will be 37" x 64".

Split Triangle Row Quilt (Step 1)





      

Materials:
2 brightly colored Charm Packs or equivalent fabric cut into 5" squares.
2 neutral colored Charm Packs or equivalent fabric cut into 5" squares.

Using this tutorial, Making Half Square Triangles (Even If You Know How), make 48 HST blocks (4 1/2") for a small baby quilt or 96 HST blocks (4 1/2") for a lap quilt.  Each block will require one light and one dark 5" Charm Square.

 Organize your HSTs into sets of pairs with 
coordinating colors facing each other.  

Chain piece the pairs, remembering to keep the colored sides together.  

Press.  



 Organizing your blocks as you desire, 
sew 3 of the sets together to make a row. 

Press.


Now, here is the fun part!
 Line your rows vertically on your cutting mat 
and cut them in half lengthwise.  
 Each half will be 2 1/4" wide.
 Rearrange your strips like this.  

 Or mix up the colors like this.  


Play around with the strips to create these pattern options.
