And Wrenkies method, as far as i recall, will yield 4 HST's per 1 matched pair of squares....

Of course if you then take 2 of the resultant HST's put them right sides together pattern to plain, sew and cut again you get QST's


The difference between HSTs and QSTs is not how they are re-assembled, it's how they are cut.

You could assemble 4 HST to make a square with diagonal cuts on the outside or you could assemble 4 QSTs to make a square with the stable on-grain cuts to the outside.

Likewise you could pair two HSTs to make a square with the on grain cuts around the outside or you could pair two QSTs with with the stretchy diagonal cuts on the outside.

Wrenkins' head fell off.  :[
However...her table runner is taking shape.  0_0
I'm trying to improve my accuracy and this method looked as if it might fit the bill. If I was using all different fabrics then the chained triangles would probably work better for randomness.
So far so good. I haven't used any starch mostly because I have none but I can clearly see the pattern which was my main concern.
All I have to do now is work out how to sew C*******s Trees for t'other side  -<

Well that's me told!

Likewise you could pair two HSTs to make a square with the on grain cuts around the outside or you could pair two QSTs with with the stretchy diagonal cuts on the outside.


and Imi's head blew off and gently rolled down to join Wrenkies!!

As we all know there are no quilt police out there, but seriously, if you join pairs of QSTs to make small squares, by whatever method, you will have the diagonal cuts on all four sides and that will make things more difficult when you sew those squares to other pieces.

The good news is they're going together ok. Phew! I'm being very careful with my stretchy edges but it's so far so good.
There are a couple of slight dimply bits where my SA went squinty but not to bad for a first effort. I'm amazed at the accuracy of my points too.  :o
I hope she likes it after all this.  -<
