Beach Cities Quilters and the Half-Square-Triangle and Four Patch Workshop

Last weekend I was with the Beach Cities Quilters in Mission Viejo, California.  Their workshop was on Half-Square-Triangle and Four Patches. Fifteen quilts can all be worked on in this workshop!  Before the day was over, I did manage to take a few pictures.

These are units ready to be sewn together for the Jacob’s ladder block.  The quilt is in my More Nickel Quilts book.

Blocks from two different Market Square quilts.  The Market Square quilt is in my Amazing Nickel Quilts book.  There were so many bright and fun fabrics being used in this workshop; some were from charm packets and others were stash fabrics!

A Sunny Lanes block from my Nickel Quilts book is being made in a controlled palette of greens.

These are Northern Lights blocks found in my Nickel Quilts book.  These blocks are a little scrappier than mine and they look great!  It’s a good way to use single charm squares or to alternate busier prints with blender prints.

This photo shows blocks for two different Northern Lights quilts.  The blocks on the left started with 5″ squares and the ones on the right started with 6″ squares.  Yes, you can use the same unit construction techniques, no matter what size square you start with!  If starting with a larger square, your units will just be larger and your finished blocks will be larger.  A great way to make some charity quilts!

Remember, Beach Cities Quilters: I love too see pictures of the finished quilts!
