SEW EASY TRIANGLES

Donna Haas started the Pieceful Patches Company in 1997 after developing Sew Easy Triangles and Reversible Prarie Points.  This unique product is now sold online at Pieceful Patches AND at Sew and Sew Quilts and Fabrics, located in Stanley, Wisconsin. 

 

What started with one simple quilt design has evolved into a line of products and patterns, all available at many quilt shops across the United States.  Donna likes to create patterns that look complex but are really very simple, enabling the beginning quilter to venture out of the strip piecing mode and into the next step.....using triangles!


With this gridded system of fusible stabilizer, you can create dozens of half-square or quarter-square triangles, prairie points, or hexagons in no time at all with no trimming or waste. The triangles are available in six different sizes, and any pattern can be adapted to their use.


Here’s how to use Sew Easy Triangles:

 

  • Determine the finished size of your triangle unit.

  • Choose the corresponding triangle paper.

  • Cut two pieces of fabric slightly larger than the sheet of triangle paper.

  • Press right sides of the fabric together.

  • Sew a basting line close to the edge on three sides to hold the fabrics together.

  • Press the Sew Easy Triangle paper onto one side of the fabric sandwich.

  • Using your sewing machine, stitch along the dotted lines on the triangle paper, turning and pivoting without cutting the threads.

  • Using a rotary cutter, mat, and ruler, cut along all the solid cutting lines.

  • Remove the paper backing from each individual triangle.

  • Press the seam allowance to the darker of the two fabrics.

  • Voila! You have produced precise half-square triangles quickly and easily, with no trimming or wasted fabric.
