Fractured Squares Give This Quilt Plenty of Interest

Much Easier to Make Than it Looks!
Striped fabrics take center stage in this unusual quilt. At first glance it will look like you spent many hours stitching strips together to create the colorful squares. But construction of this quilt is super easy and faster than you might imagine.
The trick to the fractured look of the squares is to choose an uneven subtle stripe fabric. Use the easy 8 half-square triangles method to construct the blocks, orienting the stripes as pictured. Simple! The end result will be a striking quilt that looks way harder to make than it actually is.
The quilt, by designer Tony Jacobson, is 63 1/4″ x 82 3/4″ once completed. You can easily adjust the size by altering the number of blocks you make.
PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest has featured many patterns from vendors participating in the Craftsy Marketplace, most of which have been deleted by Craftsy. It's going to take awhile for us to hunt down new sources for those patterns. In the meantime there are many links to patterns on our site that no longer work. We apologize if this article contains one or more of those links and appreciate your patience while we straighten things out. Thank you!
PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest does not sell or otherwise provide patterns directly. We showcase patterns and projects from various vendors, bloggers and other sources. Please make a note of where you access a pattern (the link in the yellow box toward the end of each Quilting Digest article). That way you can contact Support for that source if you have downloading problems or other issues. Thank you!
