How To Make the Triangle Weave Quilt Block

Join me this year as I provide instructions for how to make a different quilt block each month. Eventually, all these blocks will turn into a great quilt! For the month of July, we are making the Triangle Weave Quilt Block.  

Triangle Weave Quilt Block in Dark blue and light blue with a white background 

I love the crisp, randomness of this block!

For a 12 inch finished block (12.5 inch unfinished), you will need to cut the following: 

Light Blue 2 of 3 1/2 x 3 1/2 inch square

Light Blue 2 of 4 x 4 inch squares

Dark Blue 3 of 4 x 4 inch squares

White 4 of 3 1/2 x 3 1/2 inch squares

White 5 of 4 x 4 inch squares


First, create the half square triangles (HSTs). On the white 4 inch squares, draw a line diagonally, corner to corner. Match a white square to a 4 inch light blue square, right sides together. Stitch 1/4 inch away from the line on both sides. Cut on the drawn line. Press open towards the dark side. Trim to 3 1/2 inches square.



Repeat using the remaining white 4 inch squares and the dark blue 4 inch squares.

Layout the half square triangles and the 3 1/2 inch squares to match the picture and stitch them together in rows. Press. Then stitch the rows together. Press.
