    I belong to a BOM (well, 6 to be exact) and one month the block had 81 pieces. But...it looks a lot like yours. Their directions were horrible. I knew it wouldn't end up being 12 1/2" so I quit altogether. Now, I think I can use your way and do it. It has the exact same blocks as this. Like the three triangles together. Someone suggested I paper piece it and I nixed that idea. My hat is off to you. You should go on YouTube. I'd follow you!!!!!

    I love this! There are so many different ways to make HST, but I've never seen this one. Your explanations and pictures and diagrams were all so clear and easy to understand. Thank you so much for taking time to do this for all of us.
    Blessings!

    EXcellent!!! I am 'green'....meaning, I have my sewing machine, supplies and LOTS of material...and just don't know where to begin! I see so many patterns and ways to make different types of squares, the 'quickest' and 'easiest'..etc...and all I've been doing is 'lurking' and watching tutorials after tutorials!! I've noticed all quilts are made of 100% cotton? I know all of my material is not all cotton and I don't think all the thread I bought is either.. I have a Brother SQ-9000 and also an old Vintage Sears Kenmore. Anyways, best tutorial I've seen Rhonda!!

    So do you cut bias strips to sew together first - or do you have all bias edges on your squares? I'm sure that this works, but it is so much easier - and less time consuming - to draw a diagonal on cut squares and then 1/4" out on either side for sewing lines. Bias edges can give people fits. To each their own!

    It sure helps to have pictures with the directions, makes it all come together.

    I just ordered the "Wonder Cut Ruler", which will make these triangles so easy.
