Good Morning! It’s Week 3 of the Joyful Meadows Quilt Along! Last week we started our flying geese. If you didn’t finish them, that’s OK! This week we will only be making Half Square Triangles, and we are only making 4 combos. So you will have plenty of time left over to finish up those flying geese from last week!
I love the half square triangle unit! I love that you can make so many different designs using just this one unit. It’s a really easy unit for beginners to try too.
When I make my half square triangles, I like making them slightly larger than needed and then trimmed to size. So when making them this week, make sure to see what size you need to trim them too. Making sure you keep the diagonal seam centered in each corner.
You will be setting these half square triangles aside for Week 6 Block 3 of this quilt along.
I didn’t get as much done as I had hoped. But I’m still happy that I made some progress on my second Joyful Meadows quilt. One block done and 8 more to go! I have all the pieces made, they just need to be sewn together. I’m using some older Cotton and Steel fabrics. I love how they are looking together!
