1. H(alf) S(quare) T(riangle). a quilt block that consists of two triangles connected at a 45-degree angle to create a square.
Half Square Triangles, HSTs, are fundamental elements in so many different quilt blocks. The possibilities with these fun little blocks are truly endless! When my friend Trish said that she was hosting a Light/Bright HST Swap I was in! I finished up 216 4.5” HSTs this past weekend. 108 of them will be swapped and I’ll keep one matching block to each! By the time the swap is over I’ll have 216 different scrappy HSTs to use in a secret project! I am so excited to see what squares show up! There’s still time for you to join in the swap! They don’t have to be in until August 15th. More info here: https://www.facebook.com/events/504848966332274/
