It has been a while since I was able to make a post but I’m here to share my technique for making half square triangles! There are a whole bunch of ways that people make them and each way has its advantages. The way I’m going to show you today is useful to me when I’m using charm squares (5″ squares of fabric).
The first thing I do is pair up the squares. This process is going to involve some planning since each charm square pair makes 2 hst (half square triangle). The pattern I made has each colored square paired with a white sqaure which makes things super easy! If you are using patterned fabric, you will need to make sure that you put the right sides of your fabric together (that’s the patterned side and not the back).
Now, you have to cut them on the middle cut line from one corner to the opposite corner.
I hope you have enjoyed this post and if you have any questions please comment below!
And as always,
Make it with love!
