Half Square Triangle Fun

By September 13, 2019May 5th, 2020Blog, Scrap Busting

A while back I pulled a bunch of pink and purple scraps.  I used my Go Cutter and this little scrap busting method to cut a bunch of half square triangles.  I have dies that cut 3 1/2″ , 2 1/2″, and 1 1/2″ half square triangles.  This comes in handy in so many ways.  It saves time!  It allows me to play with scale!  A fun way to add interest to a quilt.  Like in this butter fly quilt and my Bear Scraps pattern.

 I had fun quilting a garden for my butterflies to play in.

 My quilting angel, Sheri bond it for me.  Now it’s ready to go to a good home as a Quilty Hug.

 I also used my 2 1/2″ half square triangle die to cut out this patriotic quilt.  I used the 2 1/2″ strip die to cut the 2 1/2″ squares in bulk.  Saves so much time.  Just cut your strips and then line them up on the 90* line on your die and cut the other way.  You can do diamonds this way also using the other angle lines available on the die. 

I may have to do a tutorial on that some time.  Let me know if you are interested.
