Thank you to all that visited and especially to those that commented on my blog during my birthday giveaway. Thank you for the birthday wishes.
Next I would like to show how I get all my extra half square triangles (HST).
I get these (extras) while making fly geese blocks, houses, trees or other blocks that use square pieces to make triangle corners. I'll show a house block that gives me 2 extra HST.
|draw 1st line on the diagonal|
|draw 2nd line 1/2" away from diagonal|
|stitch the 1st line|
|stitch the rest of the lines|
|cut half way between the stitching lines|
|press the seam open |
