EASY Half Square Triangles

pinwheels from my very first piecing session

I have been looking for a replacement tutorial for the charm pack half square triangles. Photos with explanations that can go through google translate seem like a wonderful option. I have had a couple of readers asking questions about the technique and finally found one of the blogs that demonstrate it, called quilt frenzy. Click on the quilt frenzy blog to head straight to the charm square to half square triangle tutorial.

I left a comment on the original blog where I stumbled upon this technique and have not been able to locate it since. I've tried google, bing, yahoo, etc. If anyone should find the original blog, I'd greatly appreciate a point in the right direction so I can credit the blogger who saved us tons of time on our next HST projects.


  1. I first saw it here http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ekYpJzHoW6E

    from Missouri Quilt Company.


  2. You couldn't resist making some could you? I have 2 packets of
    Thangles which I am also going to use to make HST, but I think the way shown on the video is much easier and less fuss.

  3. Do you know if anyone has figured out the math for different size squares? The method I've been using just add 7/8" to the finished size block you want. I'd love to use this method if someone else is a math wiz.
