Just a reminder of our BOM pattern with Half Square Triangles (HST) to challenge us. Below is the information, video link and pattern notes to get you started:

This pattern contains an error. Please read through these edits for a successful block.
  1. When making the HST, draw the diagonal line on the yellow 10" sq and press seams towards the blue fabric.
  2. When cutting the HST in half then half again, your cut lines will be at 4 3/4" and then 2 3/8".
