It occurred to me the other day that there are several methods of creating half square triangles and we all have our favorites. And- each one has its place depending on what we are making.
So I took some time this weekend to put together some "how to" guides for half square triangles.
These guides are below —
Did you know that you can modify QuiltSandwich Yardage Calculator settings to cut oversized HST so you can use a square up ruler?
And sometimes I like to use the Two at a Time method. This is what I call cutting a square, drawing the diagonal line and sewing on either side of it. Now how big do I need to cut those square?
And what if I want to create HST using squares AND cut them oversized? Just follow the instructions in the HST Square Up Ruler PDF.
QuiltSandwich is a very powerful tool that takes the mystery out of quilt math. You can make anything you want, as big as you want, with just a few taps. Check it out!
