    Half square triangles. Bloc Loc

    I have several HST to make. I am suppose to start with 6 7/8” squares and 8” squares then draw the line on the diagonal and sew 1/4” on both sides of line and cut.

    I’m looking for a good way to trim them up. I haven’t bought a ruler yet but was thinking about the Bloc Loc. Would the 6.5”ruler be the right size for the 6 7/8” squares?

    Or does anyone else have a favorite way to make them?

    Thanks

    I am a fan of the Clearly Perfect Slotted Trimmer. You trim the block before you open and press it. I think it saves time and is very accurate.

      I have the BlocLoc rulers both sizes and a Martelli rotating mat. They make an awesome pair of tools if you have a lot of HSTs to square up.

        I have the 4 1/2" Bloc Loc and love it.

        I think the next size is 6 1/2". What is the size that your block is squared to? You can use to that size or smaller, not larger.

        Enjoy life and do what makes you happy. Everything else will follow.

        Every day I try to do one thing that challenges my comfort zone.

          My squares before I sew them are supposed to be 4 7/8” and 8”
          Does that help in figuring what size ruler I need.?
