Making Scrap Blocks - Stars

Half square triangles are easy to make, especially if made a few at a time. This tutorial makes eight 2" finished half square triangles.
Two 6" squares fabric right sides together. Draw two lines from point to point.

Sew  1/4" from lines, on both sides of lines.

Cut apart on lines, and in the center both vertically and horizontally.

I press half of the seams to the dark, and half the the light. This makes for easier piecing later on.

Trim to 2 1/2".

Center square starts as a 4 1/2" square, add four 2 1/2" squares to the corners, and sew!
