    Smile Jelly Rolls to Half Square Triangles

    Well, I am not quite sure why I didn't realize this sooner, but all of the fabulous Jelly Rolls that I have purchased from M* will soon be lots and lots of Half Square Triangles as shown here. What an easy way to create them!

    I recently came across that video after searching for quick ways to create half square triangles. I'm an instant fan.

    Actually, Jenny has already done tutorials that are quicker than this method. The star block that Cozy Quilt is demonstrating is Jenny's Big Star pattern, Just smaller. Jenny has also done a tube tutorial that is a variable of what Cozy quilt is doing, plus the 12 patch wouldn't be that hard to figure out.....Check them out. That is the wonder of Jenny's tutorials...once you perfect her methods, they lead to imagination and other ways to create......
    Thanks for showing this though...it's always nice to have another way to learn!

    I like the video but do you really need their ruler can't I use a triangle ruler I already have ? Just put the line on the sewing line to cut and get the same results ? I do like some of the pattern books though might buy one

    Louise, no need for the special ruler. Jenny did a video for tube piecing technique using a square ruler with a 45 degree line. What hit me most as a duh why didn't I think of that was 1) cutting strips in half so you could mix and match and 2) using the tube technique with just two strips to create an assortment of HST blocks fast. Jenny's tute is for if i remember correctly 3 strips sewn together. Just use same concept, but 2 strips.

    I do have the ruler, but have yet to use it. I don't think it is something you need to buy special to make the blocks. I will look at it when I get home.

    I have the ruler too, it just happened to be a one of my shops. I don't think I would special order it though.
