    Half square triangle on a roll success!! You have to try it!!!

    I am making an wedding present quilt for my niece, and a while back I bought a few rolls of different size half square triangles at a quilt show. Well, this variation called for 84 3" hst squares, and I thought "oh boy", days of cutting 7/8" variation square terrors, and marking them, and sewing them, then cutting them. Then I remembered the hst roll. I followed the directions, using wof and in no time they were done! The expense is well worth it. Try them when you are faced with the 7/8" terrors.
    Yeah, I am a happy quilter, saved days of work for me.

    You can get them on a roll and at alot of LQS you get the Triangle Papers in different sizes or a variety pack. I actually got Triangulation software 1 and two. It's great you can print off what ever size you need. I got #2 because it deals with 1/16 increments and also ways to do flying geese. It was about 30 for each software package but well worth it. I print it out on drawing paper from the #store cut to size. You can use regular computer paper but the drawing paper is lighter in weight.

    I have a couple of rolls of different sizes but haven't had the chance to use them yet. Now you have me excited to try them.

    Triangulations software allows you to print them out at home and not have to keep buying them from the store:> I love Triangulations because if I need something at 8 PM I can print out the sheet and get sewing! I bought mine from Connecting Threads.

    It is called "triangles on a roll" - you can find it online at the Fat Quarter Shop and other places. I was thinking about buying triangulations, but I like the very thin paper of the roll, tears off so easy. I love this product.

    As an alternative, I have a program from Quilt Pro called Triangle Magic. You can down load it from their web site for about 15.00. Once you have it, you can print up as many HST sheets as you need in all sizes from 1" to 7 " in 1/8 increments. The instructions are all there.

    I have no affiiation with Quilt Pro, but I am a happy user.
