The half-square triangle—or ‘HST’ for short—is maybe the most versatile piecing shape, with a ton of design possibilities. This book is an wonderful pattern and inspiration book for the beginner through intermediate quilter. Several construction methods are included.
The book is divided into five easy to follow sections: Color Emphasis, Relative Scale, Patchwork Play, and Block Party, and Tools & Quilting Basics. Block Party, which is my favorite section, is a detailed chapter featuring 60, 13" HST block designs.
There is even a Quilt Coloring Book section for each of the 12 original designs so that you can play with as many color and fabric combinations as you like before you piece your project.
I'm happy to have this book on my own shelf!
