Tips & Tricks: HSTs

Today’s tip is from Chef Pamela Lincoln from the blog Mama Spark’s World.


Pam shared her trick for perfectly lining up the points on your half square triangles (HSTs). Her method prevents those “clipped” corners that can so ofter happen with HSTs.

Pam says….”A little bit of time spent pinning helps with not cutting off your points!  If you have pressed your seams correctly as indicated in your pattern/recipe the seams should “nest” as shown below.”

Line up your pieces and insert your pin…check to make sure that the pin is just at the point on each side of the intersection.  Sew right up to the pin and then take it out.


Happy pinning!
