2'' HST's

Here is a short tutorial on making tiny 2'' HST's from charm squares:

Take 2 charm squares - on the lighter of the two, draw two diagonal lines from the corners forming an X.  Sew a 1/4'' seam from both lines on both sides..........
then first cut  vertically and horizontally in the center, then on your pencil marks creating 8 triangles:
Now, if you have done a scant 1/4'', you could possibly get 2 1/8'' HST's from these, but I just went ahead and squared them up to 2'':
These 88 little HST's will go into making a coordinating pillow cover to go with my Pezzy pillow :)  I'm still deliberating on the layout.  I wish I would have thought of it before, but I should have done a values pairing with my charms!  The top row of 5 pairings could be used in a values layout, but not the other 6 piles I don't think :(
