Cut 1 E from Color 1
Cut 3 E from Color 2

  1. Sew a Color 1 E to a Color 2 E to make a half square triangle (HST)
  2. Sew a Color 2 E to each side of the Color 1 triangle (refer to picture)
    **Don't use steam when you press - there's a lot of bias just waiting to go wild and crazy

Try it out! Bring at least one block to show at the next Guild meeting, March 19.

Half Hexagon Table Runner

YouTube video demonstrating the layout - not using the Go Cutter, but the construction's the same:
Friendship Braid Quilt Idea Using Half Hex Ruler 

Betty shared her large half hex die, and we each brought 4 fat quarters to cut. Each FQ is enough for 8 half-hex shapes; this is enough for a decently-sized table runner or a really long skinny runner :-)

Dina completed one strip of zig-zags during the meeting. Phyllis is working on  the fabrics in the foreground.

Fran got a good start on her layout.
