Quilting with half square triangles

Today I started working on a very special quilt, a quilt for my baby girl.

I love this fabric, it is the "Just Wing it" line designed by Momo for Moda Fabrics.  I have been hanging on to it for over a year, I loved it so much I just couldn't bring myself to cut into it.  I always get nervous when I cut into fabrics I really love.

Half square triangle quilts may be my new favorite to make.  They are so easy to do and there are tons of ways to arrange them.  You can make quilts with a traditional look or a modern look both with these easy little squares.

Here is a super easy way to make them.

I used 5" squares for my quilt and used 40 plain white squares and 40 colorful squares.  My baby quilt should end up being about 32" x 40" after I piece it all together.

Once you have all your squares sewn, the fun part begins!  Find a big flat place to lay out your squares to find a design you like.  There are so many possibilities! 

Here are a few I tried:

They look awesome just randomly lined up...

I also love the traditional look of a pinwheel quilt...

Or some girly bows...

Some mismatched squares...

Some arrows...

Some chevron zig zags (like I used on the quilt for my Aunt Vicki)

Concentric squares...


Or maybe something like this...

Once you decide on your design, sew the squares together just like you have laid them out.  Sew all the squares in each row together, then sew all the rows together.  

I think the hardest part of making a half square triangle quilt is deciding on a design!
