I looked through the tutorial section but couldn't find an answer. If it's there, I'm sorry.
My problem is a pattern I'm doing which calls for a ton of HST's. However, the pattern maker wants you to do it the hard way- sewing the triangles together instead of sewing squares and making them into HST's.
I'm not good at math, so my question is, if the pattern calls for a 3 7/8" square to be cut into a triangle and THEN sewed into a HST, how much do I need to add so I can do it the easy way.
Does this question make sense?
