    Great way to do them. I like not being stuck with bias edges. Thanks for the nice clear tutorial.

    Thanks bunches!! This way I can make at least half of my HST for my Ocean Waves quilt in no time, YAY :). The rest will be made from scraps, which are too small for this method, but now I have time for it.

    I will ask the stupid question, which I should already know. When you begin to cut your fabric, do you pin them so they won't slip out of the lines? I have a problem that one part is larger than the other after I cut them.

    I don't pin. I lay them on the mat and am careful to place the ruler on top rather than slide the ruler. Then when I cut, I carefully pick up the ruler and lay it back down. I don't touch the fabric at all until all of the cuts are made. You could pin, just be careful your pins stay away from your rotary blade!
    Nothing's a mistake. It's a learning experience. Some experiences, you learn more than others.

    Here is the formula I learned from Linda Ballard. Of course you put 2 squares together!

    make 2 squares following this formula. Use the size of finished HST + 1" X 2 + 1/4". Put the 2 squares together. Draw fine lines corner to corner, another line down the center lengthwise and another across the center horizontally. Sew 1/4" on each side of the DIAGONAL lines. After stitching then cut on all drawn lines. Press, open, press and square up if necessary. I think adding the 1/4" gives some wiggle room.

    i.e for 2" finished hst. 2" +1" X 2 + 1/4" = 6 1/4" squares
