Pressing Half Square Triangles

Here’s a new little video showing how to press half square triangles so they do not warp. If you have ever tried to press half square triangles and have the bias seam stretch, you know how frustrating it is to end up with a wobbly diamond shaped unit. No matter how hard you try to fix it when you are sewing it into the block, it can be frustrating and still come out awful. This simple trick will make your units come out consistently square and reduce the urge to grit your teeth and toss your hard work in the trash!

If the video is taking a long time to load, you may want to visit the YouTube site and watch it from there. If you hover over the vid frame you can find a link that will take you there. Or click here.
