The HST is a workhorse block unit that can be used to make beautiful, timeless quilts. This book shows you the multiple methods for making them (from the slow to the speedy) and combines HSTs with other pieced blocks that complement the triangle blocks. The book is organised into four main sections: patterns that feature Colour, Scale, Patchwork Play and, finally culminating with a chapter on Half-Square Triangles only. This final chapter features an inspirational index of over 12 60 HST block designs and encourages the reader to design their own quilts using a single block or combining a few.
