Sew on both sides of the bias lineAnother method of making half square triangles is to place two squares right side together, draw a line on the diagonal of the lighter square, then sew 1/4" from this line on both sides. Cut on the diagonal line and you will have two half square triangles. The squares you start out with should be 7/8" larger than the finished size of the final HST.  The Quick Quarter ruler (below) is made to help with this.  It is exactly 1/2" wide so you can draw the sewing line, and has slots in the center so you can draw the cutting line. The package includes full instructions on how to cut and make 1/2 square and 1/4 square blocks.

Wonder Cut Ruler

The Wonder Cut Ruler is the ultimate ruler to use when making half-square triangles , or three-part squares, or even four-part squares perfect every time!  No paper to peel, no fabric points to get stuck in the feed dogs of your sewing machine, and best of all, no math to fuss with.  The Wonder Cut Ruler has all the math included in its exclusive design.  If you can sew a 1/4" seam, you can make a perfect half-square triangle every time.  Great for beginners! 

Use the lines on the long side of the ruler to cut strips, then sew the strips together the long way, making a tube. Use the diagonal lines on the corner of the ruler to cut triangles from this tube.  Open them up and you have HSTs.  Although this ruler produces half square triangle blocks which have the outer edge on the bias, the fact the seam is sewn on the straight of grain keeps the blocks stable.

For more details and quilt block ideas, visit the Wondercut Ruler website.  We also have a free pattern Aurora Borealis that uses this method.
