Bella Skill Builder - August - Half Square Triangle and Quarter Square Triangle Blocks

5:30:00 AM

Happy August 1 everyone - does school start this month where you're from? It does here in this suburb of Chicago that we live in!



My oldest starts kindergarten in 3 weeks time (SOBS!) - I can't believe how quickly 5 years have flown by. She's begging me to ride the school bus to school. I think not. Mommy will be driving her, at least for the first year.

The Bella Skill Builder continues today with two super-sized blocks!

Today marks the first of the month and therefore the continuation of the Bella Skill Builder Quilt along hosted by the Fat Quarter Shop. This is the awesomesauce quilt (in our own color palettes) we are all making:

...the pattern is free and the block instructions are available on the Jolly Jabber blog the first of each month, so make sure to check it out!

Here is my color palette inspiration -


These are all of my blocks for the quilt along up until this month (click the thumbnails to read more about each block in separate posts):

And, without further ado, here are my awesomesauce, super-sized blocks for this month, the Half Square Triangle (24.5" square) and Quarter Square Triangle (20.5" square) blocks featuring the Creative Grids Half Square 4-in-1 Triangle Ruler!






This month's Bella Solids colors used were:

Ivory
Melon
Teal
Raspberry
Stone

I had a lot of fun with these basic but versatile blocks.

These blocks were SO quick and easy; my only tip for you this month:

Read the directions when cutting your square units into quarters carefully

Make sure to hit the Jolly Jabber today and all of the other bloggers listed there who are participating in the quilt along, and if you're on Pinterest, save any block ideas you love for later!

The Fat Quarter Shop has a precut kit available for this quilt if you're interested, and {here's the link}.

Are YOU participating in the quilt along? Leave me a link to an image of YOUR blocks (Instagram, Flickr, your blog, wherever!) to share with me and my readers if you like! I love to see your color palettes!

Happy summer quilting everyone! Stay cool if it's hot where you are right now, and if it's wintertime, stay warm!
