Easy Quilts Fall 2019

We love triangles! Just look at the multiple ways we piece them into our quilts: triangle-squares, Flying Geese, and stitch-and-flipped corners. Even the pointiest points can be foundation-pieced. And check out all the specialty rulers on the market designed especially for triangles.

You’ll find plenty of easy-to-piece patterns for triangles in this issue of Easy Quilts. We’ve included our favorite Sew Easy Lessons so you can make triangle-squares in a flash for Glaciers, or 4-at-a-time Flying Geese for Bountiful Blessings and Follow the Directions. Grate Steps is a wonderful way to get acquainted with foundation piecing.

If you struggle with this three-sided shape, be sure to check out Vanessa Lyman’s Troubleshooting Tips for Triangles on page 46.

This issue’s Quilts of Valor® design is Saratoga, a simple patriotic design inspired by the classic Burgoyne Surrounded quilt.

There’s so much more! Flip through the pages, flag your favorites, and gather your fabrics. Let’s get quilting!
