oh, how I long to learn how to quilt... but this picture? It scares the ever-living bejeepers out of me! Not sure I am quilt-ready, lol!

To create a half square triangle {HST}, you start with {2} squares of the same size. One square is typically a ‘neutral or solid’ while the other square is a print. Here I’ve shown you {4} squares because that is how many you need to start with to end up with {1} block. My squares are each 3×3 and will create a finished block of approx. 5″ {after it is ‘squared’ up}.

HST technique. Begin with 2 squares of fabric and end with 4 squares of half square triangles. Plus an extra step to make many unique blocks.
