I love making HST and I know there are a lot of ways to make them, but if a block pattern calls for repeated ones like the example above, I love making the half square triangle with triangle rolls or printable sheets. Triangles on a roll, are rolls of ready printed template similar to the one you can print today but in a form of a continuous roll, which means you can make as many as you want without getting it off your machine. If you have never tried this method before, you might want to give it a try especially if you have to make lots of small HSTs.

You can get the ready printed template – the triangle rolls here if you wish to. I tend to be savvy whenever I can, so I normally would print off printable template on a 60gsm paper or any recycled paper.

So, for today, I am going to show you how to make 16  2.5″ HST the quick way using a printable template that you can download here :

  12. I could not get your pdf to download from the form? I instead had to screenshot and type the pdf address in. Just letting you know so you can fix it (and so you know why there were so many submissions of my name and email!). Thank you so much for the pdf, can’t wait to give it a go 🙂
