    Has Anyone Tried This Half Square Triangle Tip?

    Scroll down to the video.

    This looks easier than drawing the line diagonally across the fabric. Has anyone tried this trick?

    I saw a similar video and thought how these template companies sell all these expensive gadgets that does the simple task as a roll of tape. Duck or frog. lol

      That is because we quilters just love gadgets. And I just love Camilles classes on Craftsy. A great instructor

        I love fabric more than gadgets.

          Never heard of Frog tape. Has anyone used it and does it leave a residue. I know duct tape would create a mess.

            I think it's another brand of painters tape. I was just teasing about the duck. I would never use that on my machine.

              I would just use the blue painters tape that I already have.

                I have green painters tape. I just watched this video and great tips there. I must try and remember these.

                    I've always used this technique! May be why my points don't always match perfectly.
                    Sometimes, when there's a raging fire,
                    it's best not to try to put it out with gasoline.

                      A few years ago I learned of this tape trick. It really does work well and you get through them so quickly. I haven't used it in a while, so thanks for the reminder! I will be making my HST this way when I make my next quilt (which has a lot of them).

                        Isn't this the same idea as the Angler?

                          That is just what I was going to say! This is much cheaper though!

                            You could use this for snowballing too... just put the tape where you need it!

                              I use it for snoballingnad sewing binding strips together all the time. I have the angler, and got the tape idea from that. Rather than move the angler from the machine I had it on, to the one I wanted to use that day, I thought to add tape to the other machine, and yep same good result.
