Featured Quilter: Jen
Jen says: When I first looked through this book, I couldn’t figure out why all the math was “wrong” in the half square triangle section. Silly me, I didn’t read the directions. I’m a Half Square Triangle Paper kind of girl – that’s my favorite method. I’ll admit, I used Tula’s Method on the blocks that had 1 or 2 half square triangles but on the rest, I defaulted to my pack of Triangle Paper. What can I say, I’m a creature of habit!! This block features a 3” Finished HST if you’d like to use a different method than what is listed on page 85.
Here’s a quick overview of Tula’s Method:
Step 4: Cut 1/4” away from your sewn line. I use my Add-A-Quarter ruler for nice, easy and quick cuts.
Step 5: You now have a sewn section and extra triangles. Iron your half square triangle open, keeping the darker triangle on top.
