In a previous lesson we showed you a nifty, efficient approach to making half-square triangles (HSTs) two-at-a-time, with no fabric waste. Now, let’s take a look at a similar approach for making quarter-square triangles (QSTs).

Watch Laura Stone Roberts as she demonstrates how to begin with two fabric squares and end up with quarter-square triangles in the exact size you need. You’ll find the easy formula for determining what size to cut your squares on the video page – I recommend you print the page to keep as a quick reference in your sewing area.
