HST is not a new vitamin
or appetite depressant.
I have been dreaming in HST's.
Counting and sorting,and
HST stands for half square triangles.
For my non-quilting friends, it when
two triangles are sewn together on the
diagonal and makes a square.
I have been making 250 HST's for a red and white quilt
and the shop has had this exchange class going on so
I had made a couple of hundred for that as well.
Using a paper piecing method, is the perfect
way to do it.
It's done with 2 strips of fabrics placed right sides together
with the printed paper on top.
I like to sew with the lightest fabric placed next
Then you sew on dotted lines and cut on
the solid lines.
It makes for accurate sewing.
These squares finish at 2.5".
Press the pieces open before you remove the paper.
It helps to keep the fabric from stretching.
I press the seam towards the darkest fabric.
Next choose a good movie because
cutting off the fabric ears
and tearing off the paper
will take a bit of time.
But it will be worth it.
That batch is done.
Now I'll start on the ones from the exchange.
But first I have to put in another movie.
Until Next Time-
