The Half Square Triangle Block is one of the basic building blocks used in making quilts. Half square triangle units (HSTs) are squares made up of two triangles. Each triangle occupies half of the square's space. As you might expect, there are many, many different methods to make those blocks. This tutorial shows you 20 of the most common methods with links to more information on video.  Charts are included for several methods.

This tutorial is available as an instant download for only $1.50.  Methods covered go from traditional (with helpful notions) to innovative.  8 different rulers are shown as well as 3 different paper piecing methods and even some out-of-box ideas.
