    This is wonderful. I was stressing out trying to make those HST's come out even. Love this technique. Going to try it for my swap blocks.

    Rhonda thanks for sharing your expertise. I dread cutting out HST or anything weird. I can never match the points or the corners etc. Your tutorial looks like I shall be able to do squares etc. ciao

    thanks so much for the tutorial, i have been wanting to do a quilt with tons of HST for a long time, but have been putting it off, dreading drawing all those lines and squaring up all those blocks. this will certainly make it a lot easier... :) thanks!

    I've just been playing with this with both the strips sewn up each side and swatches, using my scraps. All blue and white and I'm doing stars of different sizes, think it will be a table runner. It's fun and sew easy peasy!

    this method is the back bone of our work. Dorothy does these by the thousands for me. I seperate into 6 basic colors and she cuts one color both lights and darks into piles and then sews the piles together and then cuts. she does about 40 each of each fabric so I get 40 HSTS of the same two fabrics. I like to have at least 8 differant sets. So when she works she ends up giving me several hundred to a couple thousand HSTs of that one color way. One time I counted them because her DGS thought it looked like at least 1000 and there was over 3000.

    Oh my! Well I haven't made quite THAT many! LOL

    But there is a pattern of baskets - know the one I mean? And I love it but have been put off by all the tiny HSTs needed...not any more!

    Thanks for this tute. I do the old overcut then trim method. It's a pain in the neck. This looks much more efficient!
