H is for Half Square Triangles.
Half square triangles are a basic part of the design of most quilt blocks. A half square triangle is made by dividing a square diagonally. You can see these half square triangles here, all of which are part of other blocks.
If you look back at some of my other Quilter's ABC posts, you will notice a lot of half square triangles as part of the blocks.
This block is made up of half square triangles and squares. It is the Hour Glass.
This next block is known to me as the Churn Dash. (I forgot it when I did C.) You will see that it also includes half square triangles. But I include it in H because it is also known as Handy Andy, or Hole in the Barn Door, or Hens and Chickens.
While looking for H blocks, I found a reference to this one, and thought that it would be appropriate to make it for this year's ABC. Quilt blocks have historically been a woman's way of expressing political opinions. I purposely did not make it in either red or in blue, though, to remain a neutral position till November.
The block is Road to the White House.
