Sparkle - A Christmas Sew Along - Sewing Half Square Triangles

It's time for some more sewing! Today we're working with reds, yay! I'm having fun with the scrappy Christmas reds that I chose.
Gather up your 36 white 4 7/8"x4 7/8" squares and your 36 red 4 7/8"x4 7/8" squares. You should have already drawn a diagonal line from corner to corner on all of the white squares. If you haven't, no worries, you can do it now.

Now place your white and red squares together, right sides together. Then sew 1/4" on either side of the draw line, repeat on all 36 blocks.

Next, use your rotary cutter, or scissors and cut on the original draw line.
Press the blocks toward the red. You should now have 72 half square triangle blocks. Square these blocks up to 4 1/2"x4 1/2".

We're making great progress! If you're just joining in, no worries, you can still catch up. 

Make sure to share your progress over on instagram using #sparklexmassewalong
