    HST templates

    Ok so I'm way to much a perfectionist to try to do this without Thangles or HST template paper. I'm making a quilt for my daughter's 18th birthday its called Buggy Wheels out of an old mag. It's 20 blocks of the carpenters star block each finished is 16in square with 64 pieces each and 90% HST. I did a test block and I'm ok but not great.....
    I know there's a place to print out the templates online for free? Or am I wrong? I would have to spend $20 on thangles plus shipping so I thought I would ask the experts.

    Thanks in advance!!!

    Thanks, Jan. I knew about the grid but forgot how to draw it.

    Here's the site I use. There are HST papers for finished sizes 1/2" through 2-1/2".

    http://www.quiltingandwhatnot.ca/Hal...-Triangle.html

    For larger sizes I use Jan in VA's "general instructions for sewing HST's".
