I do that any time I am putting a square ona corner and diagonal stitching- flying geese, square in a square, snow blocks- if the corner is going to be cut off I stitch a second line and trim between the two lines so I always have stacks of half square triangle squares to play with when Iím scrap creating. Itís so much easier than sewing together the bias edge triangles and no waste. Win- win.

Not only does this turn scrap into usable pieces, it is also a time saver. Thanks.

Thank you for posting. Very helpful with the cost of fabric to not waste anything!

Yes Watson, I have seen this before on tutorials but getting a still picture certainly does make sense. Thank you for sharing.
Iceblossom-your quilts are beautiful and I especially like the "Broken Dish" one. No waste and that is good.

I normally will stitch another line about 1/4"-3/8" from the other line to make exta HST if they're large enough and then put them in my "Extra blocks" container or I use them somewhere on the quilt or backing. Just hate throwing away good fabric if it can still be used. I always miter my strips when stitching them together such as sashings and borders. Some folks think that's such a waste but I don't throw them out but place them in my "Cutouts" container. You never know when you'll need a triangle for something. Only save them if they're large enough though again.

I used my cut offs from the stars, to make HST flying geese points, to frame around this panel.
