    I must be very lazy. When I cut HST I take two pieces of fabric the same size, right sides together sew around all four side (all the way to the end), then cut in half diagnonally, and cut in half diagonally again. Works for me.

    If one is a bit OCD about grain-lines (any one you might think of, Rhonda?),

    one can cut the strips on the bias (45 degree angle), sew them together, and then go on exactly like Rhonda has illustrated with the pressing and cutting.

    Thanks Bear I can never come up with the words to explain that since with my minis it isn't an issue.

    I'm glad it helps Tanya!! I use to use the strips primarily but we use more scrappy than anything so my friend Dorothy who does my prep work just cuts pieces slightly larger than the size she needs and piles them up and flag sews them together. Then she takes the leftovers and resews them for the next size down. IE: She makes 1 1/2" squares then when all done she pulls the leftovers apart and resews them for 1 14" and then the leftovers go into 1" squares for me! She does hundreds of them at a time and then I have them all ready when I want to sit down and use them!

    But if you are making alot of the same color HSTs then this works the best.
