Half-Square Triangle Master Class with Heather Kojan

Click the image to play a video message from Heather.

In this skill builder class, we will explore 10 different ways to make half-square triangles! All your hst's will come out to a perfect 3” finished size! We’ll have a discussion about when/why we might choose one method over another. And of course – a pattern. One comes with the class, but there will also be lots of room for creative play!   


Heather has been sewing since her teens and quilting for more than 25 years. Her first quilt was an Eleanor Burns Quilt in a Day.

She says, "Since I had a king sized bed, it made sense to me to make a king sized quilt. Go big or go home, right? That quilt was in shades of mauve and dusty blue (hello mid '80's!) Let's just say my fabric tastes have changed since then! 

I consider myself a modern quilter, with traditional roots. I'm the founder of the Baltimore Modern Quilt Guild and love speaking to different groups and sharing the modern aesthetic. I'm foremost a teacher. I teach modern quilting classes in local shops, guilds and shows across the country."

Heather is a contributing author to the book Classic Modern Quilts and a featured quilter in The Improv Handbook for Modern Quilters by Sherri Lynn Wood, and 50 Little Gifts published by Lucky Spool. You can frequently find her work in Quiltmaker's 100 Blocks Magazine, Modern Patchwork Magazine and Curated Quilts Magazine.
