Sawtooth Star Half-Square Triangle Pillow Class

  • Portland Craft Bar 211 Southeast Madison Street Portland, OR, 97214 United States (map)

Learn to piece the beautiful, versatile half-square triangle block and spin the triangular points into a modern star floating over a serene background. This class includes all the fabrics and supplies you’ll need to make your patchwork pillow cover with an envelope back, 16” pillow form, lovely refreshments, and a few surprises!

This is a confident beginner class: basic sewing experience is required, but we’ll cover everything from colorwork and design choices to perfecting your 1/4” seam, matching block seams and HST angles neatly, and machine-quilting and finishing options. You’ll leave with a beautiful finished throw pillow to instantly brighten your couch or your favorite chair! This patchwork project is perfect for spotlighting colorful and unique fabrics - I hand-dyed new designs and color mixes in the same style of the indigo fabric I used in this pillow, I love how it updates the striking design. You can choose from hand-dyed and new quilting cotton fabrics in an array of colors to make this project special, personal, and something to be so proud of designing and sewing yourself!

To register, email Leah at or visit the PCB site. The class fee is $65 for the sawtooth star pillow block class, including all materials, and $100 total if you’re taking both patchwork quilting classes in the series - lunch included!
