Half-Square Triangles (HSTs)
HSTs are a beautiful & fundamental element to so many quilt patterns. Depending upon the colors used and how they are turned, you can make some very diverse patterns.
We've been using a really slick way to quickly make 4 HSTs in our programs at Busy Bee Quilts.
Two fabric squares, sew all four edges, cut corner-to-corner, press open & trim. Voila! 4 HSTs!
We've made a supplement sheet with some tips, including methods for trimming those HSTs to the perfect size. ~Bee Creative!
