This tutorial at the Modern Quilt Guild web page shows how to make a Half Rectangle Triangle. (Actually, you’ll be making two at a time.) These are different shapes from what quilters do a lot of the time, but this tutorial makes it easy and gives very clear instructions. They can be used for a variety of patterns, and mixed with other pieces for even more combinations. I really appreciate the simplified methods that modern quilting has developed, both for modern quilts and to make familiar patterns easier.
