Quilting your Legacy Monthly Challenge is Half-Square Triangles!


Let's get a little wild, search through our patterns, and look for designs that require you to make Half-Square Triangles.  

Half Square Triangles (HST) is a precise shape in quilting without cutting triangle shapes. 


🤣They're SO Fun!! 🤣


Half square triangles are one of the most common quilting blocks because they're straightforward to make, and you can arrange them in nearly limitless ways. 


A half-square triangle is a square quilt block unit made from two right-angle triangles. The triangles are sewn along their long (diagonal) side, forming one "half" of the square.




👉 All size projects will include, such as; table runners or toppers, couch quilts, bed size quilts, wall hanging, placemats, and more, to name a few. 


The quilted project must have at least 80% Half-Square Triangles.

¼ yd each 9 Dark fabrics

The fine print: 

 August Sewn Projects with Half-Square Triangles - Quilting your Legacy Monthly Challenge


You must show your progress. Start with taking a photo of the fabric/ pattern with what you're going to create. 


1/2 points if you've started a project and are inspired or re-motivated to finish. But again, we must see where you're at now, then at the end of the month, the second photo of your finished project.


Let's see the progress! Start, middle, and end of the project.



What to do next: 

Day 1-10 Declare of the Facebook Group "I'm In" if you're going to participate month's challenge. 


Day 2-30 Take a photo or write text with your tentative idea (or ideas) of what you're going to create.


Day 31 (or sooner) - Show off what you created within the guidelines by posting a photo.



The process is everything. So let's see and be a part of your quilting adventure! 



Happy Quilting your Legacy!




Go to Facebook and state, "I'm in!". Perhaps add a photo of the pattern, fabrics are chosen, or text is fine too. 


Set your intentions now. 


What will you create for one or more of your favorite people? 



Let's encourage and support each other on our monthly sewing challenge. See you on the Facebook Quilting your Legacy Monthly Challenge page.
