I have a series of quilt block basics to share over the next few weeks, and today we start with half-square triangles! There’s a few different ways to make these little units, and I’m sharing my favorite way to make them with accurate results. If you are new to quilting, learning how to make half-square triangles (or HST’s) will add many options to your quilt pattern repertoire!
I have a one-sheet of info at the end of this post, so that you can easily make HST’s any size you need, let’s get started!
You need matching light and dark squares, on the left they are 6″, and on the right 3″. The 6″ square makes eight 2″ HST’s, and the 3″ squares makes two 2″ HST’s.
