Modern Half-Square Triangle Quilt-a-Long Block 11

**UPDATE** I had added block 12's finished picture, but had the rows for 11 - so if your block didn't look like the original post block 11 you did it right! So sorry - we are away from home for the Thanksgiving holiday and I made two blocks before we left - I wasn't paying close attention after a 2 1/2 day drive when I wrote my post. My apologies! I've corrected the pictures now!

Welcome! If you are just joining us, information about materials can be found here, and here are the previous blocks: Block 1Block 2Block 3Block 4Block 5Block 6Block 7Block 8Block 9Block 10.

8 3.5" squares of Color A
8 3.5" squares of Color B

*note* these are the essential materials for each block, so you can cut several blocks worth of fabric at once to save time!

Create your blocks, following the same procedure as last week. If you need help making your blocks, please see this post. You should end up with 16 2.5" squares. Ready to lay out your block? Here we go!





After you have sewn your squares into rows, press your seams. I like to press odd numbered rows to the left, and even to the right. It helps to use a small piece of paper to number your rows. I like the tiny post-it notes. 

After pressing, you are ready to sew your rows together! Pin, if necessary, but I find that these short rows don't require pinning. 

Press one final time, and voila! Another finished block! Only 61 to go! Pat yourself on the back! Remember to add your blocks to our flickr group!


  1. I've always wanted to quilt, maybe this next year!

    I think this is block 12 from looking at the plan. I'm really enjoying working on these blocks and your tutorials are excellent.

  3. I'm keeping up with the sewing, but not the posting photos. I'll get them up soon!

  4. The rows are not for this block, but I can just sew both of them.
