What is your favorite method of creating half square triangles (HST)?
With right sides together, do you:
Do you like to start with larger than needed squares so you can trim the HST to the correct size?
Do you like to draw the diagonal line and sew 1/4″ seam on both sides of the line, then cut apart on the drawn line?
Or maybe you like to cut the squares apart on 1 diagonal, place right sides together and sew?
What about the paper method? I believe there are triangle papers? Such as Triangles on a Roll or Thangles
Do you use a special ruler to cut your HST pieces?
I would love to hear how you like to make half square triangles.
I have a couple methods I like to use. I tried using the paper method, was not a fan. I do tend to cut my squares larger, draw the diagonal line, sew 1/4″ on either side, cut apart and trim to the correct size.
