Hey friends! I’m knee deep in HSTs over here. Seriously: the queen sized Sugarcubes quilt has, erm, 480 of them. I’m working in batches, but still, it’s alot. So what’s a quilter with a long list of WIPs to do? 4-at-a-time HSTs to the rescue! 4-at-a-time (and even 8-at-a-time) HSTs are my go to, even for much smaller quilts.
My favourite cheat sheets and charts are linked at the bottom of the page, but first, a complete how to, in pictures.
