How to make 32 Half Square Triangles (HSTs) at Once

Oh yes you read that right! 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 and that’s the brief history of how I came about the 32 HSTs at once.Read more: How to make 32 Half Square Triangles (HSTs) at Once

Do one thing everyday that scares you…Eleanor Roosevelt

Welcome everyone, Long post alert but it’s my first tutorial y’all! My name is Sola in case you are visiting for the first time via the blog hop, I do hope you enjoy looking around and find a reason to stick around!  In other news, sadly (yes I did say sadly )I’m back to work today after my long holiday . It feels like yesterday when I was tracking my fabric delivery hoping it gets to me before I left for my holiday but guess what, they delivered it a day after! Anyway, 3 weeks later after lots of hiccup and dragging my husband out of bed at 6 a.m., I finally got the fabric. Wait…what fabric am I on about?

Well I’ve had exciting things happening since I took part in the 2016 New Quilt Blogger Blog Hop and somehow I took a leap of faith and signed up for this blog hop (the reason why you are here). The Blog Hop is sponsored by Cloud 9, and hosted by (Thank you Ladies! 🙂 )Yvonne of Quilting Jetgirl, Cheryl of Meadow Mist Designs and Stephanie of Late Night Quilter! I believe there are almost 70 bloggers creating new blocks using the fat quarter bundle of the oh so soft and oh so pretty organic Cirrus Solids generously provided by Cloud9 fabrics and the palette we got is called “Berry Harvest” how befitting and clever. Before I forget, Don’t miss out on the (3) separate fat bundle giveaways, visit the hosts for entry details! Another cool fact, all the new blocks are going to be pieced together to make a charity Quilt.Read more: Welcome to Cloud 9 New Blog Hop
