Road to Brenham #10

NOTE:  These measurements are exact and they will be used for half square triangles.  I prefer to cut mine a little larger and trim them down to the perfect size.  If you would like to make yours larger and trim them down, please cut your squares just a tad larger.

Fabric 1 – Cut 1 – 4-1/4″ square.  Cut it on the diagonal twice to yield 4 triangles.

Fabric 2 – Cut 1 – 4-1/4″ square.  Cut it on the diagonal twice to yield 4 triangles.

Step 1:

Using these triangles, make 4 half square triangles.  If necessary, trim these to 2-5/8″.
