Triangles on a Roll

 Have you seen the fun You Tube Video
by Camille Roskelley for Craftsy?
It only lasts a little over a minute
but well worth watching.
You know how we love anything using
Half Square Triangles!
 If you would like to try some of these layouts
we suggest using the
 easiest and most accurate way
with
 The blocks can be made with any size Half Square Triangle
We used a roll of #H300
*3 1/2-inch unfinished/ 3-inch finished
from Triangles On A Roll
and a stack of 5-inch Charm Squares
in both solid and print.
Match a solid fabric
with a print fabric 
placing right sides together.
Pin a section of the paper on top.
 Lower the stitch length to 1.5
and sew on the dotted line.
The sections can be chained pieced together quickly.
 16 sections will make 32 HST's
the amount needed for the 2 blocks
 Using a rotary cutter, 
trim on the solid lines, even around the outside edges
 Each section makes 2 HST's
 When you press them open
you have 2 Perfect Half Square Triangles
that measure accurately from corner to corner
 Because the Half Square Triangles are so 
accurate
I didn't even need to use pins to sew
the HST's together.
 Look how nicely every point comes together.
Makes you look like a Rock Star in the quilting world :)
This shows 2 of the block options
but 23 more are possible!
