Easy Peasy Half Square Triangles

Just had to show you all this new technique (new to me at least) for making half square triangles from charm packs. Very fast. Thank you to the Missouri Quilt Company for this Tutorial.

These half square triangles can be made in any size. Here is a cheat sheet I found for the formulas for other sizes. Keep in mind this is for the finished size, and you should always try to test one with your machine before making many to make sure that the size you pick works for the finished size you want to end up with.

Each pair of the following sized squares will yield 4 HST:
2" square=1" HST
2 ½"=1 ½"
3 ½"= 2"
4"= 2 ½"
5 ½=3 ½"
7"=4 ½"
8 ½"=5 ½"

I have made the following printable sheet for you to get here:

  2. Thankyou so much for an extremely useful tutorial


Thank you so much for your thoughtfulness in leaving a comment. Sorry for the verification, but I have had a lot of trouble with spam lately.
