Shards Quilt

Create this quilt with a new technique that will save you time!

This quilt takes traditional quilt blocks like Broken Dishes and Pinwheel and stretches them into rectangles for a new look. Half-rectangle triangles don’t behave quite as well as their half-square brethren. But don’t despair! The Modern Quilt Guild’s blog described an easy way to piece half-rectangle triangles, so this pattern has adapted their method to save you the trouble of using templates—all you need to cut are rectangles!
