It's time for another quick throw quilt made of half square triangles. Half square triangles are so speedy. I'm going to go less into the step-by-steps of this quilt (as it's pretty much the same as the last one I made), but there's an additional how-to that might be handy here. Anyways, first we start with how much fabric and cut into how many half square triangles you need!
There's a tiny cat in this household who is rather fond of quilts.
Assuming fabric about 44" wide and a quilt that is 72"X64".
2.5 yards in accent color
2.5 yards in background color
Note: If you do the accent/background color with more than one fabric, as I did, just make sure it all adds up to approximately 2.5 yards each. Although, the fabric needs to be cut at least 5" wide (i.e., at least 1/9 yd).
The 5" squares will turn into 4.5" half square triangles.
144X 5" squares in accent color
144X 5" squares in background color
