Learn how to make Ripples, from my first book, “Simple Quilts for the Modern Home.”
Ripples is a great introduction to half square triangles. It is made entirely with two-at-a-time half square triangles. I love making triangles using this method because you sew on the bias while the two halves are still attached, so there is much less stretching and the triangles will turn out the exact right size.
In today’s video I walk you through the two-at-a-time triangle method, the importance of trimming and show you the double pinning method I used to make sure all of my points end up exactly where they are supposed to be.
The original fabric for this quilt is no longer available, so I used Mirage by QT Fabrics. I love how the new colors makes it look completely different, and I think it does a good job of showing how you can really make the quilts your own.
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 in the 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”.
