    Re: Rhonda's Really Easy HSTs

    Thanks for sharing this. I have just one question about this. Aren't you now working with bias edges on the triangles?

      Yes you are but it has never been a problem for me. I use a tack and tack everywhere the seams meet and on the ends. If you like you can also spray with Magic Sizing to keep it from stretching. Tho I've never had to do that.

      Tacking is just putting a stitch across where the seam will go through. and if I am working with a larger size you can pin along the seam line also. I feel a tack holds the seams in place better than a pin.

                  Since these are bias triangles, for me... Jenny's method is faster and easier. I really like making HST's with her method, and I don't have any trouble with bias.

                    I can't wait to try your technique since there are so many blocks using HST. Tacking is also a new technique to me - - Do you hand tack or do it by machine?

                      I usually do the tacking by hand with just a stitch or two. I have done it with a machine but the hand stitch is easier for me.
                      I find the tacking helps with being more accurate when you join two hsts together. It helps you with not losing the points because one of the biggest reasons people lose points is when they don't make sure the hsts are accurately joined together. If you have one hst crooked even a little bit then your seam will be off and that is when the point disappears into the seam.
