Red Elegance Quilt Pattern: Half-Square Triangle Block Sewing Tutorial Follow the 1/2-square triangle blocks: Marked on Ruler in Purple
Cut crosswise strips of two fabrics the “cut” measurement printed on Ruler. (Example: For a 4-1/2” block, cut 4-7/8” crosswise strips.)
Stack and align fabric strips, right side together with lightest fabric on top. Subcut into squares, using the same “square cut” measurement on the ruler. (Example: For a 4-1/2” block, cut 4-7/8” squares.)
Use Clover’s No-Hassle Triangles Gauge to accurately and quickly mark blocks. Depress button to slide and align No-Hassle Triangles Gauge with the “cut” measurement of the 1/2-square triangle block size. (Example: For a 4-1/2” block, set gauge at 4-1/2” Half-Square Block squares.)
Set sewing machine for a straight stitch (2.0-2.5 mm). Attach a 1/4″ quilting presser foot. Straight stitch, guiding right side of foot along marked line. Note: Stitching line will be scant 1/4″ away from marked line. After stitching along one side of marked line of all square sets, rotate chained blocks and stitch along the other side of the marked line. Note: Stitching line will be scant 1/4² away from marked line.
At end of block, place next block on bed of sewing machine. Stitch continuously from one block to the next – “chainstitching” blocks continuously.
Clip threads between blocks. Cut blocks apart along diagonal marked line, using rotary cutter, ruler, and mat.
Press seam allowance flat to set seam, then press seam allowance toward dark fabric.
Each square set will make two 1/2-square triangle blocks!
Follow the step-by-step directions – included in the pattern – for assembling our Red Elegance Wall Hanging or Double/Queen Quilt!
