Last month was so much fun.
We are going to be making a block for Siblings Together again, but this time it is going to be a quilt for a teenage boy. As a mum to 3 boys, I am conscious of the lack of quilts out there for the boys, especially older boys, so I am keen to make something for this age group. For colours think blues, greys and whites, maybe a bit of colour with yellows.
Now for the block, or rather triangle!
The block starts with a right angle triangle - of any size - that is then added to like a Court House Steps Block. The widths of the strips can be varied until the sides that are perpendicular measure at least 12.5".
So start with a perpendicular triangle:
Sew a strip onto one of the straight sides and press the seam outwards. Make sure you use a strip that is longer than the side.
Trim the excess off the triangle:
Keep adding another 2 sides until the triangle is complete:
Keep adding strips:
Once the triangle measures over 12.5" on the perpendicular sides you are done!
Here is my other one:
Hope you enjoy it!
