SQ Angles

Do you sew a lot of half square or quarter square triangles? Have I got an item to show you!! They are called SQ Angles or “squangles” as we called them at retreat weekend. The SQ stands for super quick and trust me you won’t believe your eyes on this one.

These are heat transfer template sheets. They come in finished blocks sizes from 1/2” to 4” and the sheets are reusable for several pressings.

Simply pin the SQ Angle template on the back of the lighter fabric and press with a dry iron.

The design will transfer to the fabric.

Pin the two fabrics together and sew along the dotted lines (I used dark thread so you could see it).

Now for the amazing part….Simply cut on the horizontal lines.

Cut on the vertical lines.

Cut on the diagonal lines.

In just minutes…yes, MINUTES…I had a lovely stack of half square triangles.

Very little waste.

They turned out more accurate than I would have sewn them and I didn’t have to waste any time “squaring up” the blocks.
For all the skeptics out there, here is the accuracy shot of a 2 3/4” block. AMAZING!!

The Details
The sheets retail for $15.00 per pack. You can order a variety pack which will include 1/2”- 4” or a pack with just your favorite size.  Available sizes are (1/2" & 3/4") -  1"- 1 1/4"- 1 1/2"- 1 3/4"- 2"- 2 1/4- 2 1/2- 3"- 3 1/2" and 4".

That is pretty cool. Being my quiltin sista and I are knee deep in Bonnie Hunter quilts and Bonnie loves her half square triangles. We just found a light weight fusible that has all the markings. It works great and adds stability to your blocks along with masking darks showing thru lights. I am going to have to give these a try too!
Thanks for the great tip!

These look like they take a lot of the work out of measuring and achieving perfect HST's. Thanks for the link, I just sent them an email about pricing. Would love to try a sheet, thanks for the chance.

I am not a fan of half square triangles. I find that I can't ever get my seams to match and spend more time unsewing than sewing when making them. Thanks for the information on these.

I love these they would be perfect for hand piecing, which is all i do. I tried the thangles but they dont work for hand piecing. Thank you for a great giveaway babscorbitt@gmail.com
