It's July 1, and we're rolling right along! I'm still in disbelief that a month of summer is already gone and 4th of July is in just a few days.All of the blocks for the 2022 HST BOM will be 16 patches. (There aren't any bonus blocks this year, but I will be releasing some of the blocks we didn't choose for the BOM throughout the year. They're just too good not to use and will make some awesome quilts!) You can use any size block unit you like, and the half rectangle triangles will be a 1:2 ratio. I am using the AccuQuilt GO! Half Rectangle Triangle Die (3" x 6" Finished) (Just a heads up...this die is on clearance at AccuQuilt, so if you've been thinking about buying it, I recommend doing so! I have a feeling once it's gone, it's gone.)
Zina is using the Deb Tucker Studio 180 Split Rect Ruler which is available from many online shops including Fat Quarter Shop. With this ruler, you can make multiple sizes of half retangle triangles in the 1:2 ratio needed for the BOM.
For the July block, these are the block units you will need.
Zina designed the July block, and it's another great combination of HSTs and HRTs.
