Create a fun, modern quilt that looks a lot harder to make than it is with April Rosenthal’s Patches and Triangles quilt pattern. Featuring four-patch units and half-square triangles, this project uses 2 ½in precut fabric strips, such as a jelly roll, and is easy to assemble.
Use only 25 2 ½ inch fabric strips
Looks great in bright modern fabrics with neutral background fabrics
April used plain linen fabrics in medium and dark values for the half-square triangles — you can use linen to add texture to your quilt, or cotton fabrics instead
Clear diagrams show you how to construct the four-patch units and half-square triangles, and then how to join these units to create the block
Detailed step-by-step instructions and colour photographs take you from cutting your fabrics and creating your units, to assembling your blocks and finishing your quilt
A great project for intermediate quilters and for using precut fabric strips
