How to make half square triangles from squares video tutorial
This video is the first in a series of video tutorials to teach quilters how to make triangles from squares. I love this method, I find it far more accurate than sewing triangles the traditional way.
It works by sewing first and cutting second. That means the bias doesn’t get stretched out of place during the piecing process, which means points actually end up where they’re supposed to be instead of getting chopped off or swimming in a too large seam allowance.
All the triangle units I’m going to be teaching can be used in my Raspberry Sherbet quilt pattern. You can download it at my Craftsy Pattern Store. The sample is 60 inches square, but there are alternated sizes for crib, twin, queen and king sizes quilts.
