QNT SCRAPPY HSTS #1 2021

9-1-21 to 10-1-21

--6 different HALF SQUARE TRIANGLES

--2 partners to receive 3 different HSTS each

--mailed size 4 ½” X 4 ½” each HST

We will be making our HALF SQUARE TRIANGLES with one side white and the other side any print senders care to make them.

This swap will be a good way to use up some scraps of fabric from our stash.

A. Pick 6 different 5-inch by 5-inch print charms from your stash (or cut some if you wish)

B. Gather (cut) 6 white or tone-on-tone white charms, also 5-inch by 5-inch

C. Follow instructions below for making HSTS…they are so easy; you will love them!

D. In this swap you will end up with 6 different HSTS for yourself and 6 to send to your partners. Each partner gets 3 for a total of 6 HSTS mailed.

Making Half-Square Triangles:

  1. take 2 fabric charms of equal size (example: 5-inches by 5-inches)

  2. we are using one white and one print charm for this swap series

  3. on wrong side of the white charm draw a pencil diagonal line from upper left corner to lower right corner

  4. place the 2 charms in a stack right side together

  5. stitch one-quarter inch seam on either side of the drawn line

  6. cut on drawn line

  7. press open both HSTS (press to the dark side)

  8. square them up (example: to 4 ½” X 4 ½”) (google this if you need more help, because a picture of squaring up is much easier to understand – to me that is)

  9. follow these instructions for all 6 HSTS, which will yield 12 HSTS, 6 different HSTS for you and 6 to mail to partners.

Have fun, do neat work, and swap-on!
