Round Robin – April Assignment (Half-Square Triangles)

Hello, Robins!

Another month, another round. This month we’re going to do half-square triangles (HSTs) because they are classic, not too fussy, and are fun to play around making different arrangements with. They are a design motif with deep roots that stretch beyond patchwork.

Again this month, kindly sew HSTs for three sides of the top in blocks matching the size of the rail fence blocks.  I envision the three sides clasping the last round, but I leave it to your judgment whether that is the best choice for the project you get.
