    ahhhhh I see .... you were meaning "just" the triangles, and not the squared up HSTs!
    So I think you are trying to do a Square in a Square unit, right?
    I just happened to pull this out of my sleeve for you!!!

    And I too would oversize ... I always find that those things go a little wonky, no matter how perfectly you do them! So oversize, and starch ... and trim to squared up perfection!!!!

    There's lots of other similar goodies on that site.
    I have a book that I keep by my machine, bought that has a lot of those formulas and charts in.

    W4Me - I heard of a method for doing a square in a square. (I have done it once.) Cut 2 squares the same size as the center square. Now cut diagonal across both of 'em. 4 triangles that are too big. Find the centers of the center block & the centers of the triangles. Line 2 of the centers up w/the opposite sides of the block & sew 'em on. Then do the other 2 sides. Trim to the correct size. Clear as mud???? Wish I had my camera so I could show ya.

    Thanks dublb. That actually makes some kind of sense. I will be playing soon, just don't know when. It's another of those weekends. Craft fair Saturday and two mothers on Sunday. No me time to speak of. I think I may have some of that in June. I hope.
