Back Cover Information

What do all these quilts have in common? It's this simple triangle block.

  • Use it to create six different blocks, then choose from many different settings for endless options!
  • Step-by-step instructions, along with many hints, make the 60-degree angles much easier than they look. Try it - You won't be able to make just one!

From the Author

I was working in my studio one day, experimenting with some fabrics and quilting tools. I had recently purchased a 60-degree triangle ruler, and was starting to play around with it. I soon found myself sewing away, caught up in all of the different possibilities. The more I played around with the fabrics and the 60-degree angles, the more design possibilities I saw. I found that a simple 60-degree triangle could be arranged into many differnt block options, and those blocks could be laid into many different settings. Those ideas grew into the theme for this book.

As many of you know, I love to sue time-saving techniques in my patterns and I love to try to make things easier than they look. I incorporated those ideas into this technqiue as well, and have shared many ideas to make the hexagons easier to assemble, from strip piecing, to specific pressing instructions for easy nesting, to assembling the blocks into rows to avoid those dreaded "Y-seams". So go for it - Give the technique a try. Like me, you won't be able to make just one!
