    thanks for taking the time to make the tutorial. i've seen this in the past and it looks so quick and easy. the only drawback in my mind is that the edges of the hst are bias edges.

    I can see where the bias edges can be a concern. I would use spray starch on the blocks. And carefully pin the pieces together. We can 't avoid bias edges on triangles.

    Thanks for this. I usually use the lazy girl ruler, but this looks easier for some reason. Will try and let u know.
    Another thanks for the apps. I just call my BIL to ask how to resize, but alas he has a PC and is not in the Mac world. I will try those too.

    True there are bias edges on HSTs but I prefer mine to be on the inside ( long leg of triangle) rather than on the outside edges.....The EASY ANGLE template is the easiest way to make HST...don't have to"starch" to handle. If I am making a ton of them I like to use triangles on a roll.......just my way of doing things....or my GO. If using small scraps, just stack and crank and out they come!

    Do you end up with bias edges on the outside?

    Unfortunately, yes, the bias edges (2) are on the outside.

    I actuallychave that ruler and have never used it. What a great time saver and so accurate. Thanks for sharing.
