Week #3 Sunbonnet Sleuth Mystery

Half-square Triangles - This is a unit that every quilter needs to learn how to cut and sew. There is a simple formula to determine the size you need to cut fabric squares to make a half-square triangle unit.

First determine the size of your finished half-square triangle unit. The half-square triangles we are making today are a finished size of 6" x 6".

Now add 7/8" to the finished size to get the cut size. Therefore the cut size of the half-square triangles we are making today is 6-7/8" x 6-7/8".

You can use this formula for any size half square triangle you may want to make in other projects.

Now let's sew the half-square triangles for this week's sewing step. Just follow the directions and you will be quickly done.
