    It does seem easy. However, when you draw the line, you get two HST's. This looks like it only yields one? Isn't that more waste?

    If it's true we learn from our mistakes, I'm going to be a genius!

    I fold one piece in half, iron, put it on the other square and stitch along side, or on the crease, depending on what I need to do.

    Personally, I'd take a 3x5 card and cut 45 degrees off one end. That way I'd have a long straight edge to lay against the top/left side of the two pieces of fabric.
