So this was a post from 2016 but it’s been getting a lot of views lately and I thought it deserves a repost as the technique is still as useful even 2 years later. I hope someone finds it helpful. Kindly let me know what you think if you try this!
I “accidentally” made 32 HSTs 2 years ago and I said accidentally because I messed up the cutting of my Squares for the 8 HSTs at once method. I had seen the tutorial for that method somewhere but couldn’t pinpoint it when I needed it (I wasn’t on the blog then and I still don’t know why I didn’t do another Google search?) so I did the maths in my head and figured to get (8) 2.5″ HSTs, I need 2 squares measuring 11″. Needless to say, I was far from being correct! I stitched 1/4″ away on both sides of my diagonal lines but when I came to cut my pieces I realized my HSTs were way bigger than what I wanted so I stopped to find a solution. That’s the brief history of how I came about the 32 HSTs at once. Continue reading “How to make 32 Half Square Triangles (HSTs) at Once”
