Helpful Tips for More Accurate Piecing!
Half-square triangles are used in so many quilt patterns that it makes sense to perfect the process and results. While many tutorials explain how to make them (there’s a good one here), we seldom see tips for making points match when sewing half-square triangles together.
In a perfect world, half-square triangles would automatically match up and produce perfect points. However, since we’re not perfect, a few good tips can make a big difference.
An excellent article by Amanda Castor provides help. She covers the basics of cutting and sewing accurately, nesting seams and then goes into depth about matching points on half-square triangles.
You’re sure to find something there to help you to consistently get good results.
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!
