    Thanks for the formula! And IraJane, thanks for the tip about that extra quarter inch and squaring up.

    I am going to have to try this method. Looks like a great way to do them.

    Thanks bunches for this. Wish I knew this before I bought the SMUP ruler by Elsia Backporch. But I'm a notion kinda of girl. I haven't actually used it yet. But here is what I'm talking about, and it's kinda limited compared to your method.

    Thank you for posting the backporchdesign site ...very interesting especially the last diagram with the 4 different 5 inch squares on the one 10 inch square. This is will be my mission for this afternoon ... Will use the sizes I want instead of the sizes shown but like the idea if 4 different HST is of interest to me. Such fun to learn and share ideas

    Hi Judy. Hope you are following this conversation 'cause I want to thank you for this great information on HSTs.

    I did post a pic of what I did using this method and wanted to post it here also, so you can see what an impact this has had on my work.

    After I posted my little quilt top, I was PMed by a member who wanted some of my leftover scraps, so I mailed leftover 4" perfect HSTs to her.

    This tip has been paid forward several times now and I just want to thank you again.

    I know this is an old post. I pulled it out of my quick link saved under subscribed threads to use on the shimmer quilt pattern I am making now. One of the best things I learned on the QB was how to save links for future use.

    There are no bias edges to worry about. I want to thank Judy363905 for showing this trick to us way back in 2013. My shimmer quilt will sew up a lot faster now. Thanks again. peace

Sew on the printed lines - I use doodle pads from the dollar store - paper comes right off.
    I also use "Triangulations" CD for PP'ing have all versions which includes Flying Geese. Quick and easy and multi units at once depending on the size...

    I use the Magic 8 HST method all the time when I'm not doing huge scrappy. I love this method!

    Great question, Watson. I'm a computer dumb bunny and need all the help I can get!

    This is one terrific idea! I've seen and folks on TV quilting shows, but y'all made it easier to understand. I make scrappies all the time, so I can really use this method. Thanks for posting.

    Hi Watson. It is really easy.

    1. look at top of page at the header, find and click on Quick Links.

    2. click on Subscribed Threads.

    3. To the right-ish side of the screen and down a little, find and click on Thread Tools.

    4. click on Subscribe to This Thread.

    You can save any thread you want to for later or follow. I use this to save patterns and tips and tutorials. I don't have to search the entire QB or ask for help finding something. You can do this in any thread you are interested in.

    Hope this helps. peace

    Thank you, Kitsie! I use the eight-at-a-time method regularly, but when I've needed only four, I've used the sew-around-the-perimeter of a square method. It never occurred to me that I was creating bias edges. I'll use your method in the future.

    After you click on that then it will drop down - to be able to subscribe, I didn't go any further.

    To be able to find it later click on settings at the top of the screen then click on bookmarks or subscriptions on the left side of the screen.
    I always bookmark as I don't want emails.
