Two hundred sixty-two half square triangles and forty flying geese units? No problemo. It’s easy with Inklingo. Let’s start with the HST shall we?
Step One: Iron freezer paper to right side of lightest colored fabric.
Step Two: Print triangle shapes onto the wrong side of fabric in a contrasting color. I used a bit darker red than I would normally so it would show a little better in the photos.

Step Three: Layer printed fabric with a second fabric, right sides together.
Step Four: Sew on all the DIAGONAL DOTTED lines.
Step Five: Rotary or scissor cut all the SOLID lines — including the dog-ears.
Step Six: Press.
Voila! Perfect HST without papers to remove and even better — NO SQUARING UP NEEDED.
If you’re like me, you have a project or two with a half a million HSTs to square up and you got bored with the job and stalled. So now the project is hiding in the closet. I know your secrets! [I've got a few of those myself. . .] Next up, that gaggle of flying geese!
