~*~ Tuesday Tutorial ~*~

Welcome! If you are new to the Tuesday Tutorial, you can use the search box on the right side bar to find the other posts in this series. My goal is to help you find ways to use up leftover half square triangles, and make a beautiful sampler quilt, with each block showcasing this versatile unit. I am using blues and whites, because I have a lot of them. Pick a colour you love, or go scrappy! It’s all up to you.

Today, we are making a slanted diamond block to add to our HST sampler blocks. As always, we start with some leftover Half Square Triangles. It’s a quick and easy block. I made it this morning in less than ten minutes, while I waited for my kids to get ready for school.

You’ll need 16 of these in whatever size you want. I have used 2.5″ squares


Lay them out like so:


Sew them into rows. Make sure you keep your points oriented correctly. Press seams in opposite directions.


Sew your rows together, and give your block a final press. All Done!
