A Great Time Saver for Half-Square Triangles!

How often do you find yourself having to draw lines for half-square triangles or other piecing projects? If you’ve done that for even one quilt you already know how tedious the process can be.

The following video from Laura at SewVeryEasy offers some wonderful tips for speeding up the process of drawing lines on fabric. These work especially well for half-square and quarter-square triangles. They also work, with a little adapting, any time you need to draw on fabric.

If you’ve been quilting for awhile and have developed your own process, you may be tempted to skip the video. We encourage you to watch anyway as there are some great ideas here that you may not have considered.

Note: Laura uses the Little Gripper from Gypsy Quilter (get it here). This works great with small rulers. Larger grippers are available for larger rulers.

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!
