Triangles on a Roll

 Recently I needed a stack of 
3 inch Half Square Triangles 
for a project I am working on.
I decided to conduct a test
to see how fast I could make
44 Half Square Triangles
using 
 No drawing lines 
or trimming up with specialty rulers is required!
These went together fast!
The instructions for 
3 inch Half Square Triangles
direct you to cut your fabrics 8 inches wide.
come on 50 feet rolls.
I cut a section of paper 42 inches long
which fit nicely within the 
Width Of Fabric 
 Pin the paper to the top of
two pieces of fabric with right sides together.
Lower stitch length to about 1.5
Sew on the dotted lines.
Time: 13 minutes
 Cut on the solid lines
even around the outside edges.
 Cutting Time: 5 minutes
 With a gentle tug, 
pull off the paper.
 Paper removal time: 5 minutes
 With an iron, press open to the dark.
Pressing time: 5 minutes
I even trimmed off those bunny ears: 2 minutes
**
TOTAL TIME TO MAKE 
44 HALF SQUARE TRIANGLES 
=
30 MINUTES!!
**
and
Each Half Square Triangle is 
perfectly accurate  !

Half Square Triangles 
come in 11 different sizes
from 1 inch up to 6 inch
and can be ordered 
on the website
