Making Half Square Triangles the Easy Way

When I first started quilting, I was on my own. I was self taught, learning new things as I went along. When I was working on a pattern that required half square triangles, I dutifully cut out all the triangles and sewed the blocks together. Sadly, I was not always accurate enough and the blocks turned out wonky, pulling to one side or another.

Here is a quick video (less than 3 minutes) to show you one of these techniques.
