In the fall of 2017, I started playing around with these 6" foundation paper pieced half-square triangles and they were So. Much. Fun. I made made them in rainbow colors, full on scrappy, and low-volume scrappy. It was so relaxing to pick through my box of scraps to find the perfect fabric for each block. 'Cause that's how quilters relax. We play with fabric! And these triangles are the ultimate in fun, relaxing foundation paper piecing.

Not only are they fun to make, but they are very versatile. So many different quilts are made with just half square triangles. I could substitute these into any of them. So many options.

I posted a foundation for these 6” Scrappy Triangles once a week on my blog for a whole year.

Now I’ve put all the foundations together into one PDF file so they will be easy to download and print.

After you download the file, you can easily scroll through the different foundations and pick which ones you want to print. Print as many copies as you like, but, please, send friends to this site to download their own. Click below to get the 52 Year of Scrappy Triangles foundations.
