The half square triangle unit is probably the most commonly used patch in a quilt block -- well it is second only to the square. It is made simply with two triangles, filling up half the square each -- hence the name. Take a quick look through this website, or in any quilting magazine, and you will start to notice that this half square triangle, regardless of its size, is present in more quilts than not.
Aunt Sukey's Choice
Free Quilt Block Pattern
The Aunt Sukey's Choice quilt block pattern can fit into several categories. It can be an easy block, because it is made up of commonly used quilt patches, such as the half square triangle.
Aunt Sukey's Choice can also be considered an intermediate skill level because of the larger number of pieces required to make the quilt block. By taking your time and paying attention to accuracy of your seam allowance, you will find this an enjoyable block to create.
Two very different quilts are shown here. By setting the quilt blocks on point and adding additional large triangles, you achieve a totally different look than by using the common, straight set for the quilt blocks.
