Everyone in the quilting community is seeking for faster ways to complete all aspects of the craft, including cutting. There is no exemption made for half-square triangles.
It makes perfect sense to be able to cut half-square triangles from squares rather than cutting individual triangles out of each square. There is only one additional nugget of advice needed to make this a reality:
* Calculate the finished size of the short side of the triangle and then add 7/8″ to the number. (For example, your finished size square is 3,” you will cut a strip 3 7/8″ wide.)
* Cut a strip of fabric that width
* Cut squares from the strip of fabric (Using the same example, cut 3 7/8″ squares.)
* Cut the squares in half diagonally to create the half-square triangle. (Cut your squares from corner to corner.) This process is not limited to rotary cutting. For those scissors-users among us, just mark your fabric and cut.
