New VidCast on Half Square Triangles

Half Square Triangles with Trish

I’m happy to say I figured out how to edit the video’s I’ve recently filmed.  Here is the new VidCast on how I make half square triangles when I am using 2 1/2″ strips.  This method is a great way to get perfect units and you don’t have to rip paper off when you are done!  Check it out.

    Trish!! Thanks for the video. I’m so happy to have found you. I took a few classes from you back in the day in Alaska . . . . including Portraits of Alaska.

    God bless you and have a very Merry Christmas!

    YOU ARE SOOOOOO SMART. What a great idea – no paper to pull away from the stitching. Clean and neat! I will recommend your new vidcast in my next newsletter!

    I found your vidcast from crazyshortcuts and I love your technique on half square triangles. I am going to use that technique on my next project. Thanks so much!

    Wow, I will no longer have to trace the last portion of the thangle rolls so that I am never without these papersl, thank you so much for your smarts! I am just a bit confused though, when you go to sew the second side, you mention lowering your feeddogs and from previous comments, no one has questioned why. Am I missing something or did you mean to lower the presser foot. Thank you again for this great idea, Sue.

    OMG. I DID mean to say Presser Foot, NOT Feed Dogs. Thanks for catching it. Also, if you are interested… you can use Sulky’s Totally Stable instead of the freezer paper to do the same thing. It’s available at any quilt shop including JoAnn’s and Hancock Fabrics. Thanks, again, Sue. Trish
