Sounds like Dory on Finding Dory. I will tell you i have tried every method of making HST's while making the Million HST's for this current top. I have trimmed and trimmed to make them right. I have tried the paper method the adding of 3/8 inch to the size I made and I tried the 7/8 inch the Internet suggested, boy was that sure wrong. Also I used the Triangle papers to make them. Nothing is perfect.
I have trimmed and straightened. Changed my presser foot and marked the lines on the blocks and on the bed of the machine. But I still have slivers that need to be taken off.
I am thinking this isn't going to be a bed sized quilt because I am tired of the trimming. I am close to having enough for a good sized lap quilt.
So to get back to which method I liked. I cut the squares 3/8 inch larger than my size I need and cut them in half diagonally. I have just a sliver to trim so that isn't to bad.
I do not like the tube method of making them, Forgot that left bias edges. The others I can deal with, but the older method works as well and as fast as any other.
Tomorrow I have some picking up to do in there. I had a stack of papers in there and it slide off due to my big backside. So sorting that out and putting it in the right folders.
I think this Internet with all the quilt ideas and tutorials on it is my down fall. I have been looking less and less because I will never live long enough to make everything. LOL. Right Hettie???
