Half-Square Triangle Spinning Star Quilt

Half-square triangles, or HSTs, have to be one of the most versatile quilt blocks around. No matter how you piece 'em together (yeah, there's more than one way to make an HST! ) the result is the same: a simple foundation block made in two contrasting fabrics, that can be arranged to create quilt designs ranging from crazy simple to beautifully complex.

Classic quilts blocks are a great way to nail some basic quilting skills. Take the Ohio Star block for example: it has half-square triangles (sewn into an hourglass shape) and a nine-patch construction, all rolled up into one beginner-friendly block. Bonus: the Ohio Star looks great by itself or as part of a larger sampler quilt.

This one's a classic, but that doesn't make it boring! This beauty has plenty to offer all on its own, or combined with other blocks for a statement-making accent. Best of all, it's totally beginner-friendly: nothing more than squares and half-square triangles here!
