Half Square Triangle woes?
I don’t know about you, but sometimes I struggle to get my HSTs perfect! The instructions on the Sampler Shuffle blocks don’t really take this into account, and I have found it helps me a lot to start with two squares that are 3″, sew the diagonal lines, cut them apart, press, and then trim down to the required size. When I do this, I get a lot closer to perfection! And when I use my Bloc-Loc ruler, I actually can have perfect HSTs. A minor miracle!
Here’s a look at some of our blocks for week 3
Aren’t they striking? On the left is Alana’s batik blocks. On the right are Terri’s blocks; Terri is doing all her blocks in the black, grey, and yellow – a really appealing combination!
