Remember you are always free to set your own pace. But, I will have some prizes to hand out at the end in September. Woot woot! And we’re almost there!
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! There’s a correction to one of the yardages below. Printables in the BHQ Resource Library have been updated.
Okey doky, let’s jump right into Week 6…

PS! Don’t forget to check out my paperless paper piecing tutorial. Total game changer!
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 12’s should be in the center with the four Triangle Block 9’s on the outer corners.
Next, you will sew Block 12 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 12. 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 6 blocks.
Social Media Sharing and Playing
This is Sierra‘s Week 5 Blocks. I love Sierra’s colors she’s using. Thanks for sharing Sierra!
Instagram: Remember to use this hashtag #MTMquiltalong on Instagram. Due to changes in the Instagram algorithm, I’m more likely to see your post if you tag me @bryanhousequilts. Commenting with the @bryanhousequilts or #MTMquiltalong doesn’t guarantee that I’ll see it. (Why Instagram! Why you gotta be changin’ all the time!?) But if you tag me, I should be able to see your post!
Facebook: Join my newish Facebook group to share your in progress pictures with the group.
Show your work: This week share your progress and any finished blocks!
All the templates, patterns, instructions, etc can be found in Modern Triangle Quilts. The instructions were written to cut and make 1 of each block. I’m offering adapted cutting instructions and some adapted piecing instructions to my Newsletter Subscribers and quilt shop owners as a bonus.
I’ll be back next week with our next step, Quilt Top Assembly. This is getting exciting!
