Block 1 of Rosebud Fayre Medallion Quilt
In this video Jennie and Valerie discuss the fabrics they have chosen; talk about half square and quarter-square triangles and the way the grain of the fabric works with you and against you.
They construct the centre medallion from four half-square triangle units and tell you why they have opted to do this rather than use a large single square piece of fabric.
There is also a separate, more in-depth video on how to make fast and accurate half-square triangle units.
