The HST Report 2017

I have been wondering how many HST I made during 2016 and  looking over the year they  have appeared so often. Whole quilts full of them and quilts that have them as part of  blocks. There wasn't too many projects over the year that didn't have some in it. So what I am going to do is count them up in 2017.

No matter what project I am make I am going to tally them all up over the year. Plus I will share some projects made from half square triangles. This is the last batch I made in 2016 so these ones do not count but I am only halfway through this batch so there will be more.

Do you make lots of them? Do you avoid them? I know someone who avoids them. She doesn't like triangles full stop. There is so many ways of making them too. Do you have your favourite? I generally use the 2 square method so I end up with two blocks and I can trim them if I need too. Some days I can't seem to sew a straight line, that is why I need to trim, other days I'm good.

There is a tutorial in The Block Library on them  TBL-1  It was the first block we explored last year.
 I am should we will be seeing again in other blocks we explore through The Block Library. The back issues can be found here on the blog under The Block Library tab but to get the current edition sign up for our newsletter and you will receive it in your inbox  when it has been released. Edition 6 was released in December. The blog will always be 3 editions behind. The Block Library is bi monthly, so  the next one will be  in February.

You are welcome to join me counting your Half Square Triangles to see how many you make and along the way we will have some giveaways (Sponsored by Cynthia's Ark).
It should be a fun experience. Maybe we make tons of them or maybe we don't make as many as we think we do. We will find out over 2017.
If you are interested in joining me let me know in the comments below and I will make a page here on the blog and we will keep a running tally each month and we will see what happens over 2017.

Until Next Time
Keep Stitching
