Quilting Technique Toolbox: Cheater Half Square and Corner Triangles
Led by Helene Knott
Quilting Technique Toolbox Classes are a series of 3-hour monthly classes devoted to exploring special techniques that will enrich your quilting resources when making future quilts. Each technique will be presented as a practice block, students can choose to make a larger project from the technique blocks or simply make a 'practice block' to learn the technique. Each class stands alone, there is no requirement to take them all, students can pick and choose the techniques they are interested in learning. Each class will be suitable for beginners but even more advanced quilters may find valuable methods that they have not yet tried. The project lesson will change month to month.
Cheater Half Square and Corner Triangles: Many quilt patterns involve half square triangles either as units that form a diagonally divided square or in some cases to occupy a corner as in the Snowball/Melon Patch block patterns. In the past quilting era, these triangles were painstakingly cut using templates and sewn on a block stitching across bias edges that are prone to stretching and distortion making for wonky blocks that were often the wrong size. In this session, I will show you a couple of different methods to make painless half square and corner triangles along with a bonus tip that minimizes waste and gives you extra half square triangle units for another project.
