"This free tutorial will show you the way to make easy Half Square Triangle blocks from two squares of fabric rather than from a triangle shape! Half square triangles are also referred to as hst blocks or hst units. Even if you’re a new quilter the different ways to make these basic blocks will let you have a finished quilt in no time flat!! HSTs were the first blocks I learned how to make! Using this basic method you’ll get two HST blocks at a time! I especially love this alternative method versus the traditional method as it’s sometimes hard to cut the correct size of triangles and then sew them together along their bias edges without the block ending up all wonky!"
