    HST templates

    Ok so I'm way to much a perfectionist to try to do this without Thangles or HST template paper. I'm making a quilt for my daughter's 18th birthday its called Buggy Wheels out of an old mag. It's 20 blocks of the carpenters star block each finished is 16in square with 64 pieces each and 90% HST. I did a test block and I'm ok but not great.....
    I know there's a place to print out the templates online for free? Or am I wrong? I would have to spend $20 on thangles plus shipping so I thought I would ask the experts.

    Thanks in advance!!!

    Thanks, Jan. I knew about the grid but forgot how to draw it.

    Here's the site I use. There are HST papers for finished sizes 1/2" through 2-1/2".

    http://www.quiltingandwhatnot.ca/Hal...-Triangle.html

    For larger sizes I use Jan in VA's "general instructions for sewing HST's".

    I have the Trianlation CD; actually two of them. The first of them allows me to print in 1/4, 1/2, etc and the second one gives me the 1/8 and such measurements. I go to the Dollar Store and get paper the kids use and cut it down to the right size and then chose my size. It cost around 25 for each CD but I no longer buy any paper or anything else and I have measurements when I need them. The second CD also has great ways of doing Flying Geese and a few other extras too.

    I usually use Triangulations, too - it's the bomb! But my next top is made of nothing but 2" HSTs - 64 per block.

    The Triangulations would only print 12 blocks per sheet of paper, so I ordered the 2" size from Laundry Basket Quilts. Two 6 x 21 pieces of fabric laid right sides together, pin the paper onto the back of the light side, stitch and cut - 28 blocks from each pair of strips.
