That girl...Thatquilt:HST tutorial
You take your measurments of what your HST is going to be when it is done. Mine is 6.5. so I pulled up windows calculator and put in
Beginning square size x 0.64 = HST size
If you know what size your HST should be then use this to find what size the beginning square needs to be:
HSTsize/0.64 = beginning square size
Just like Jennifer showed on her blog. I made my squares 10 inches and then sewed them together.
TADA! Much! MUCH easier. Thanks Jen for that one!
