Split Triangle Row Quilt (Step 2)

 Please start here at Step 1 to produce your Split Triangle Rows,
using 96 HST blocks. 

To create the layout as described here you will require setting rectangles.

2 - 2  1/4" x 8 1/2" background fabric.
7 - 4" x 8 1/2" background fabric.

Using your setting rectangles, layout and construct your top as in the following photos.  

This is long and narrow (approximately 27" x 54") and will be used as a table topper.  I will add 5" borders once my sewing room is back in order from water damage this summer :( 

The finished top will be 37" x 64".

Here are a few more posts that you may enjoy:


  1. What are setting rectangles and how are they used?

    1. If you look in the 3rd and 4th photos (from the top) you will see that I have shifted the split triangle rows up and down to create interest in the finished quilt. Plain fabric rectangles are required to fill in the spaces at the end of these rows. These are called "setting rectangles". This is the same concept as setting triangles in a diagonal setting.
