Half Square Triangle Blocks- New Design – Block #1

I uploaded to YouTube a video showing a fun new block design using half square triangles.

Here is the link to the video  https://youtu.be/cZ78mLengMM

And here is the block!  The block could be made in many sizes and for quilters who love to work with 5″ squares this block would measure 32″ if you were to make the half square triangles using 5″ squares.

This is how I came up with this design:

I started with half square triangles arranged into groups of four.

Grouped those four units into a block section.

Duplicated that block section and placed those sections into a block giving each section a 90° turn.

Now the 32″ size is just one size of block you could make but you could scale it back to smaller sizes or even make it bigger.

Using half square triangles that finish 2″ the block would be 16″

Using half square triangles that finish 1 1/2″ the block would be 12″

Below is an idea of what the 32″ block would look like in a king size quilt.

I have shown additional quilt sizes using the different block size options in my YouTube video.
