    Since I found Quilt In A Days TRIANGLE square up ruler I can turn them out very quickly and they are always perfect.
    Eleanor Burns is a genuis at finding the best and easiest ways to do quilting.
    All my quilting buddies have switched once they saw how it worked.
    Check out the ruler and her method at:

    I have that ruler -- in addition to a bunch of her other tools & like all of them.

    These papers aren't any different than other HST foundation papers except that they don't have the little cut lines to remove the bunny ears before you press the squares open. They work just fine.

    There are places on the web where you can print out different sizes on your own paper to get a feel for whether or not you like dealing with paper foundations. Some people don't like them, some do - I'm addicted to them, I'm afraid. I have grown fond of having most of my points intact and not floating.

    Try this site if you want to give it a whirl: http://www.quiltingandwhatnot.ca/Hal...-Triangle.html

    The advantage to Triangulations is that you have patterns for a TON of sizes in 1/16" increments, plus flying geese.

    The advantage to LBQ papers is that you can do so many more at one time.
    Ooooooooooh... what a great site!!!! THANK YOU for sharing it! I ha some of those triangles on a roll but you didn;t get many of them out of a FQ (the shape is wrong -- if that makes sense). This looks like it'll work great. Once again... THANKS!

    And BTW... are we gonna get to see your quilt of a zillion HSTs? LOL! I hope so!

    I bought a roll of the 5" size. They are easy to sew at a sew day when I like to do mindless sewing while I visit with my sewing friends. It doesn't take long to have enough sewn to make a pieced border for a quilt. I pin two fabrics to a length and have them ready to pick up and sew.
    Got fabric?

    I've used others & while I liked them, I just couldn't turn out as many as I wanted. I really like the size of these. Did you find that they were as neat as I think they are? I also think they'd be neat to use in a swap because you could just swap the whole sheet.

    I hated using Thangles which are paper hst strips so I doubt that I'd personally like doing a full sheet of them.
    Why not do the 8 at a time hst's? The extra bonus to doing this method is that the bias is on the sewn edges so you have nice, straight of grains left over to work with
    Fast way to do 8 at a time half square triangles (HST) with straight of grain edges!
    I swear by this method and have made oodles of them already.

    I just saw the video and ordered two of her books last night. I LOVE her quilts. I'd love to be in a triangle swap in the near future.
