    Btw, there were some comments about using 7" squares rather than 6.75". I am making table toppers using only the center star so I tried the 7". They do work but be aware that you will have to trim off the square after you sew on the triangles. I'm lazy and I hate trimming so I am sticking with the 6.75" measurement but the 7" works fine if you dont mind the extra step.

    This question originally came from postal packin' mama. I had this "discussion" with another poster recently. In MHO, I think she is right in calling the triangle a half square triangle. That is what it is. I think all the rest of us use that term incorrectly. We all say a HST is the two triangles sewn together. But I don't think we'll be changing any minds soon, so we'll just have to live with it.
