Quilt Assembly

Quarter Square Triangles

Mark the wrong side of a medium 13 1/2″ square in half diagonally once. Lay a marked medium square over a light 13 1/2” square, right sides together. Sew a quarter inch from each side of the marked line. Cut apart on the marked line. Press seam towards the medium.

Repeat with the medium and dark 13 1/2″ squares.

Mark the wrong side of the medium/light Half Square Triangles from corner to corner crossing the seam. Mark 1/4″ from both sides of the marked center line. Leave the medium/dark HST unmarked.

Layer a marked and unmarked Half Square Triangle right sides together, and pin. Sew on the marked 1/4″ lines. Cut apart on the marked center line to make two Quarter Square Triangles.  Repeat with the remaining Half Square Triangles to make 24 Quarter Square Triangles.

Trim to 12 1/2″ x 12 1/2″.

Center

Lay out the quilt center in rows, alternating Nova 3 blocks and setting Quarter Square Triangles. Pay attention to the arrangement of light and dark in the QST blocks for each row. Sew together the blocks into rows and the rows together into the quilt center.
