Mastering Half- Square Triangles for Your Next Quilt

A quilt based on the square and rectangles is the easiest to make but when you start to divide the square and rectangles there are endless possibilities.
There have been many unique and creative ways to sew these triangles for your quilt, but the half-square triangle method I have listed below is not only fast and easy, but also accurate. This method is based on creating strips of fabric, sewing them into a unit, cutting segments from the unit, and finally cutting the segments into squares. Your quilt will have squares that are not distorted because the pressing is done prior to cutting the squares.
