    Thanks for the tute. Good idea. I must need a 'shrink' though, because I like making hst's. Different strokes for different folks.

    This is how I make my HST's. It's soooo much faster than every other method I've tried, including using the Easy Angle ruler. As far as the bias, I've found that if you don't finger them or tug on them, it's really not a problem.

    That sounds so much easier! Can't wait to try it!

    Hi Sandy
    I like your idea just a question do you line up the ruler with the edge of the fabric or do you line it up on the 1/4 stitch line? you have sewn down each side

    I line my ruler on the bottom edge...making sure that the top point of the ruler does not extend above that seam...see as pictured.

    And I just learned how to use my old cell phone to find contacts and how to post pictures in the forum. What is the world coming to! Technology is moving too fast for me.
