In this one day quilt workshop we will guide you through creating your own design in half square triangles to ultimately sew into a 16” pillow.  Half Square triangles (or HST) are popular quilting motifs and can be arranged in countless ways! You control the look of this pillow depending on your print and color choices as well as how you arrange the HST’s!

At the end of class we will show you how to create an easy envelope style back for your pillow.
