Class- Half Square Triangles .. aka HST's

This is a great way to learn to make Half Square Triangles.  HST’s are the building blocks to may traditional quilt squares.  This method is called the accordion method of making multiple HST’s . 

In this class you will learn to mark, sew, hold, fold, sew, and then cut your squares into those oh, so useful and creative half square triangles.  The minimum HST’s to make using this method, is 6!  The maximum….. the sky’s the limit!  In our class we will make about 40 HST’s
