Does anyone have a link to a free Half Square Triangle template that makes 3 1/2" finished blocks?

Thanks!

Why do you need a template for half square triangles? I've never used a template before...

oh duh, do you mean the bias strip piecing method? I've never tried that.

Maybe template isn't the right word.  I'm looking for the paper you use to make multiple HSTs without waste, like this:

http://www.quiltingandwhatnot.ca/Half-Square-Triangle.html

I've started a new quilt and it needs 108 HSTs w/ a finished size of 3 1/2". I've used the paper for other sizes, but I can't seem to find
this dimension.  Cheesy

ohhhhh ok! Lol, sorry I've only made them by sandwiching two squares together but that would be pretty cool if you're making a butt ton of them! Grin

Have you seen the ruler that you use to make the bias strip method? There might be a little waste that way...I'll keep my eye out for the size you're looking for.

Take the 1 3/4 and photocopy double size.  Cheesy

Your cut line would stay the same.  the 1/4 inch seam allowance would probably be off.  But do you really need to see that part?

@danni - thanks so much for that link!  I love that method.  I always made my own squares like they do here http://www.waukinvnetcorp.com/myquiltgenie/mgq_hst.php, but this new way seems like it's much faster.

I have found that this is easier done if the fabric has LOTS of starch this will make working with the bias a TON easier!
