Quilters at All Levels Can Benefit from These Great Tips!

Half-square triangles (HSTs) are important building blocks for many quilts and quilt blocks. Often they can make or break a quilt and, unfortunately, while they look simple, it’s easy to end up with wonky HSTs.

Quilters will want to master them in order to produce consistently matching points and other joins. Whether you’re new to quilting or have been quilting for awhile, if you sometimes produce wonky HSTs you’ll appreciate the excellent instructions provided by Karen Brown from Just Get it Done Quilts.

PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest has featured many patterns from vendors participating in the Craftsy Marketplace, most of which have been deleted by Craftsy. It's going to take awhile for us to hunt down new sources for those patterns. In the meantime there are many links to patterns on our site that no longer work. We apologize if this article contains one or more of those links and appreciate your patience while we straighten things out. Thank you!

PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest does not sell or otherwise provide patterns directly. We showcase patterns and projects from various vendors, bloggers and other sources. Please make a note of where you access a pattern (the link in the yellow box toward the end of each Quilting Digest article). That way you can contact Support for that source if you have downloading problems or other issues. Thank you!
