Sherbet Stars - Free Quilting Tutorial from Erica Arndt

A fun and easy quilting tutorial for you today! Great for beginners and comes together really quickly. This quilt uses all HST's which is an acronym for “half square triangles”. There are several techniques to create HST's, and several different designs you can get simply by turning them around. Today Erica Arndt is going to show you an easy way to create four HST's at one time!

Sew Refreshing Color Story Collection

"You can use any fabric selection you like, but I thought I’d share with you what I used just in case you were curious. * Background: 1-1/2 yards Moda Bella White 9900-97

* Stars: 18 FQs, I used Fresh Cut by Basic Grey for Moda

* Backing & Batting: 4-1/2 yards backing fabric & batting (I use Warm N White 100% cotton batting)

* Binding: 2/3 yards, sub cut into 8 – 2.5” WOF strips (WOF = width of fabric)

For those of you who like to reference the cutting instructions in print, here you go!

===Cutting Instructions===

* From your 18 fat quarters: sub cut into 36— 10” x 10” squares. Make sure to cut 2 squares from each fabric so you have 2 identical piles (A and B) with 18 squares each.

Background Fabric:
1-1/2 yards background fabric

* Cut 18 - 10” x 10” squares (C)
* Cut 36 - 6-3/4” x 6-3/4” squares (D)

* 2/3 yards fabric, cut into 8 –2.5” WOF strips, sew end to end using a straight stitch to create your binding roll. Check out my DIY Tic-Tac-Toe tutorial to see how I bind my quilts. I'll also have a binding tutorial coming up soon!

=== Note: Sew and trim all seams to 1/4” unless otherwise directed. You are also welcome to add sashing or borders to make this quilt even larger if you wish! Just make sure to adjust your batting, backing, and binding requirements to fit the size of your quilt!"
