Block 1 Triangle Gatherings-I know you want to start asap…



Click here for a printable pattern:   block-1

This is your pattern…so whether you are doing 2″, 3″ or 4″ blocks…doesn’t matter…You stitch the HST like this demo…Click HERE…and then stitch them into 4 rows…stitch the 4 rows into the block.  Press row seams open.img_9390

If you are going to be stitching with the NEW scant 1/4″ foot…you will need to pin like this shown above…I have always pinned this way…but for some I know its hard to switch…Pin so the tip is just missing the 1/4″ and you will never hit one..

Here is my BLOCK 1fullsizerender-6-copy

I am using the 3/4″ and so my block measures 3 1/2″ at this point…it looks bigger here but the edges are curling up and making it look a little larger in the photo…img_9393

Back…I pressed all the seam open

So each week and sometimes twice a week I will post a block – making 1 block takes so little time, so give yourself at least time to make one block a week…we want to figure out every way possible to make a block with 16 HSTs.

Can’t wait to see your blocks… our hashtag will be #trianglegatherings

  2. I’m in!! I love your sew-alongs – Thanks so much for offering another one. I’m wimping out by making the 6 inch blocks – Lol!

  3. I thoroughly enjoyed the Magic of Christmas. Didn’t finish it yet but excited to do this one. I’m going to do the big blocks and because you offer it for free I’m ordering your paper. I’ve used another brand but excited to use yours. Question do you have an idea how many packs we will need to complete your work in progress?

  4. I’m excited to continue using small HST to create blocks, but will be purchasing you papers after working without them on the Magic of Christmas. 🙂

    I’m new to stitch alongs and need a some clarification. Are you demonstrating with one 5″ square of background fabric and one charm square? Do I need 60 +/- charm squares, one for each 3″ block?

    Thanks for providing me this opportunity to grow as a quilter.

    1. Beth…yes you are correct …but there are over 80 blocks…so i’m telling your the charm papers come with 60 in a pack…so you will need two packs…make sense?

  5. I love your designs. I have to order more paper from you. Yours are the best. I like the sheet type because you can do so many at once. Thanks for sharing once again. Happy New Year and by the way – I love that you are taking time for “little man” and really looking at life as not just taking care of everyone else, but adding yourself into the mix. Hugs. M

  6. I’m so glad you are doing the half square triangle block sew along. I ordered several packages of the mixed variety of your triangle paper sheets during the Christmas specials.

  7. I have ordered papers for 1 1/2 inch triangle squares, so I will wait to start until they come. I printed block 2, but block 1 does not come up as a PDF for me either. I like to print them so I have them in front of me when I sew.

  8. Am loving your blocks. You mentioned you used your scant 1/4″ foot for juki. Where did you purchase. I have the 1/4″foot that came out last year so is this a new foot? Thanks
