Going North – Easy Strip Pieced Half Square Triangle Pattern – Simple Quilts for the Modern Home

Learn how to make Going North, the first pattern in my first book, “Simple Quilts for the Modern Home.”

Going North has expansive negative space, a hallmark of modern quilt design, so you just have one panel to piece. That makes it great if you are just learning, need a fast gift, or want some wide open space to practice your quilting on.

In this tutorial I walk you through how to strip piece, how to use the 45-degree lines on your 6×24-inch ruler to cut half square triangles, how to work with directional fabric and how to pin so you get perfect points every time.

This tutorial is meant to be a supplemental guide for people who are visual learners and want to see the quilt being assembled in addition to reading the instructions and assembly diagrams it he book. All of the cutting instructions, yardage requirements and everything else you need to make this pattern are included in “Simple Quilt for the Modern Home”.
