marking out fast half square triangles with a grif


Fast half-square triangles with Val – this is a modern update on an old and tried method of making lots of these quickly – but without the nasty 3/8th   or 7/8th that we used to think was necessary.  Use your rotary cutting equipment to help you but otherwise no special gadgets needed – and the best bit is that you can trim them back to be absolutely accurate! Watch Now+
