We worked on half square triangles this week. Both of them managed to make perfect friendship stars. The quilt needs three blocks so they will make one or two more at home.
First they tried Alex Anderson’s method of making the half square triangles where you cut triangles and sew them together. Next they tried drawing a line on the square and sewing 1/4 inch from each side of the line. The next method they are going to try is to make them slightly oversized and trim them down.
I also reviewed Thangles and Triangles on a Roll. All are good ways to make the half square triangles and I use several of them at different times depending on the project I am working on. What method do you like best?
