    Thanks so much, LucyintheSky! I needed 48 HST's for a quilt I'm working on and found your tute just in time. This worked out so great. I was afraid they would come out a little skimpy, but the formula leaves just enough margin for error so that I could square up each HST to the right size with very little waste.

    Our guild challenge this year is an all 1/2 square triangle project so this will help get straight of grain blocks to work with in the project. Thank you so much for posting.

    I've made some of these HST's that don't make a pinwheel. The two sides don't go together correctly. You need to make two sets to get a pinwheel and then they are going opposite ways. What do these HST's do? I could try it, but does anyone know? (And save me some time.)

    I have been trying this and I can't get my squares to come out right.
    What size block would I start with to end up with a 3 1/2 inch square.
    Thanks again
