    Someone posted a link to making a half-square triangle by sewing all sides of your fabric square. I have searched and searched and can't find it. :cry: I would have sworn that I bookmarked it. Can anyone help me find it?

    I found it on the Missouri Star Quilt Company's tutorials. I think it was on u-tube.

    In this tutorial, methods 3 and 6 both leave your HSTs with bias edges....why would you want to do that? Bias is a problem going somewhere to happen for many quilters. I've been piecing/quilting for nearly 30 years and still avoid that whenever I can, with just a little effort of planning ahead for the straight/cross grain edges.

    in this tute you end up with loads of HSTs on the straight of grain. it works very well. you can do it with any ruler. just follow the method.

    This is the tutorial that you are looking for. Makes half square triangles by sewing around the edge. Hope this helps.
