Remember you are always free to set your own pace. I know I am blazing through the quilt along, but rest assured these posts will remain up on my website for the foreseeable future. And, If you do want keep up, I will have some prizes to hand out at the end in September. Woot woot!
If you’re new to our quilt along, take a few moments to go back to the Introduction Post where you’ll find all the pertinent information about the Modern Triangle Medallion Quilt Along. You’ll also be able to get the introduction printables, which have coloring pages and planning sheets. People have found them to be very helpful. So I don’t want you to miss out!
Heads up! I have a modified paper piecing foundation for Triangle Block 15 in the Bonus Printables, which you can access below or in the BHQ Resource Library. So you most certainly want to download that bonus before you prep your materials this week. I found the modification to be really, really helpful in my own piecing.

Once you have the Triangle Blocks made, it’s time to sew them together into square blocks.
First, lay out the triangles blocks according to the picture above. The four Triangle Block 15’s should be in the center with the four Triangle Block 9’s on the outer corners.
Next, you will sew Block 15 and Block 9 into square pairs, or Half Square Triangles, as shown in the picture above. For the upper right and lower left units, press the seams toward Triangle Block 15. For the lower right and upper left, press the seams toward Triangle Block 9.
Sew the units into rows. Press the seams to one side.
Piece the rows together to finish the square block. Press the seams as desired. Make 4 of these Week 2 blocks.
