I have a quilt in the process of being machine quilted that is all HST's. Well did I do a good job? Probably didn't get all the corners perfect when sewing them together. Do I need to work on the learning curve? Yes I do. I have read so many ways to make them and yet I see waste in some methods and see potential issues with others.
I have used the squares and cut 7/8 inch over, squares and cut 5/8 inch over and squares and cut 3/8 inch over. Also cut 1 full inch over and trim to correct size. I have seen cutting stripsand cutting triangles and sew them together. I have seen bias strips cut and segment them. Paper piecing and cutting squares and drawing a diagonal line and stitch on each side and then cut them apart. I'm sure there are other methods. I haven't found one I like.
I need to get a ton of them made for a quilt top I'm in the middle of. It had 86 pinwheel blocks so you know 86 X 4 is a lot of HST's. What method do you prefer? 344 HST's I did the math and now I'm scared. Help me. Chris
