12 Days of Needful Things-Day 4


I really cannot stress how important the paper is when you make a lot of HSTs or if you are making very small HSTs.  Our papers are really, really nice….the cutting lines are very fine and accurate, so if you stitch, and cut accurately, your triangles will be accurate!

Here are a couple of quick videos on each step in how to use Primitive Gatherings Triangle Papers…

They come in sheets for an unlimited amount of triangles or we have them configured for charms squares as well…The sizes run from 1/2″ to 2 1/2″, for the sheets…and 1/2 to 1 1/2″ for the charms squares.Half Square Triangle Paper Videos featured by top US quilting blogger, Lisa Bongean

Sewing the starched two fabrics right sides together…paper on top of the light…shorten the stitch length to half of what you normally stitch at.  I move to 1 on my Juki.  Stitch all the dashed lines.

Trim on all the solid lines….make sure you have a nice small ruler…

Flip them to all the dark triangles are facing up…press them using lots of steam….Do not  remove the paper yet…


Now is the time to remove the paper, the paper helps stabilize the triangle.  Now, hold the triangle near the stitching with your non-dominant hand.  Push the paper triangle back with your dominant hand and pull it away from down near the stitching in the center of the paper triangle…


I hope this helps you with your HST’s.  Please don’t avoid quilts with HSTs…they are so fun!

Today for our Needful Things we are offering 25% off on ALL Triangle Papers.  If you are unsure of what size you want, we do have variety packs with a bunch of sizes in each..also see the chart I have made for converting a pattern to what size triangle paper you will need.

Click HERE to go to my page where you can print the HSTs chart.  Scroll down to the bottom.  This chart is always in my Pages if you need a quick video or to reprint the chart.

Today we are giving away three sets of all the Triangle Papers to 3 lucky winners!  Please leave a comment and let me know if you have used our Triangle Papers and anything else you want to say, and if you have not used them yet, do you purposely avoid Triangle quilts…do you use something else…do you trim ALL those HSTs after making them..twice the work??  Let’s hear it all…

Do you have your list ready for this week?  Let get it done!  So we can have fun!

all for now…Lisa

    I used to avoid triangles until you did the triangle sew along a few years ago, i loved using the paper, used snowman gethering fabric, loved how it all turned out.

    I love your triangle papers. When a pattern calls for lots of triangles, I always grab PG ones. I like the large sheets which are easy to cut down when you only need a few.

    I have not tried the triangle paper yet. I still make my triangles the old fashion way (UGH!) but I’m definitely reconsidering that I need to try the paper version. Most of the time I use triangles in borders. Time to learn something new and easier, right?

  8. Pam Avatar

    I absolutely LOVE triangle papers – they are a “needful” for me too. I started using them for Rocky Mountain Puzzle (made two of those) and I can’t be without them for HSTs. I love pressing with them and I even love pulling all of the papers off. My favorite part is that they turn out perfectly every single time.

    Any time I make a quilt with hst I use these papers. I have used other triangle paper in the past, but these work much better. The paper is much easier to remove than others I’ve used in the past. It is so frustrating to have to pick out the paper from the other products. Give them a try

    I love the triangle papers. I use them every chance I get. These make those little triangles so accurate and much quicker than drawing lines and sewing on squares. I bought the Shiny and Bright kit and have it waiting along with my triangle papers for a long sewing weekend coming up. No family gathering for our family for a few months due to COVID, so this project will be a fun distraction and I am ready. Thanks Lisa for sharing all your talents!!

    I love your triangle papers! There is no other way to get consistently accurate half square triangles. The papers for charm packs have changed my scrap quilting life. I love to make as many combinations as possible using charm squares. I recently finished a quilt using 70 sets of charm squares.

    You got me hooked on the papers when we did the Christmas QAL a few years ago. It took all the frustration out of HSTs…no more wonkies and leaning pieces because they were out of alignment. Now if I could stop meandering my seams at the end! I keep blaming my progressive bifocals. If only I had started quilting when I could see better.

    Hi! I have to admit, I have avoided picking patterns with HST! I spend so much time to make them turn out perfect. So, I have purchased a few sets of the triangle papers from PG.

    I love these papers and just ordered more recently. I first used them when doing Words to Live by (I think there are about 700 triangles in this quilt). Every triangle came out perfect a d had perfect points when stitched together! For me (a somewhat perfectionist) these are the best needful things to have on hand!

    These triangle papers gave me the ability to make what I deem ‘a quilt of a lifetime’. Memories of a Masterpiece- one of your patterns. I made it during the first lockdown.

    I have not tried your triangle papers, but I watched your videos and I think I have to give it a try. I just got done sewing a bunch of HSTs from the corners I trimmed off of snowballed corners because I didn’t want to waste the fabric. Needless to say, I had to trim all of those units, but I have been using the Bloc Loc ruler and it helps a lot.

    Well, the last time I needed triangles I made them and then trimmed them. Bad me. Lately I have been sticking to squares and rectangles. But I think a good New Years Resolution would be to buy (or win) some triangle paper and add to my skill level.

    Love using triangle paper for half square triangles. The ones PG created to use with 5” charm squares are wonderful when making small, scrappy quilts. Lisa’s suggestion to press open first before tearing the paper away was the best thing I learned about using triangle papers.

    I have used triangle papers for making HST. My favorites are the ones PG offers for using with 5” charm squares. It makes it so easy to work on small, scrappy quilts. The best advice is to tear after pressing open – tearing away the papers aren’t as awful a task.

    I love love love the triangle papers. I just did 500 triangles for the border on a quilt – even with a mix of fabrics -the triangle paper made It so much easier. I admit I sometimes have to square up my triangles if it’s not one of Lisa’s patterns. A friend in my quilt group was going to do the star pattern with all half sq triangles without using the paper!! I asked her to just try a few and see how it would save her hours. She became a believer and the star quilt is amazing. Just try them once!!

    I love half square triangles and use your papers when I have a LOT to make for a quilt. I also use them if I have really small half square triangles to make. The papers work great for those because they can be hard to hold for going thru the machine and they’re always accurate which is important!

    I did buy the triangle papers to go with a kit this time around – hoping it saves me from having to cut twice!

    I have used your triangle papers with the Bristle Creek Farmhouse quilt. They were pretty slick! For larger triangles, I don’t see them as a necessity, but I purposely bought some of the smaller sizes to use for mini quilts. I haven’t had time to try them for that size yet…Iooking forward to the experience! I love triangle quilts and don’t avoid them at all!

    I used Thangles quite some time ago. I have done some of your miniature projects but just cut very, very carefully. It would be fun to try some of your HST. Hope I will get an opportunity soon. I am very precise so I am sure I will cut twice..

    I have spent over 20 years making my triangles oversized and cutting them down. Waste of time and fabric, I’m told. A friend gifted me the triangle papers to make Fade away… from your Urban Farmhouse book…. 1400+ triangles… I sure hope I like them, that’s a lot of triangles!

  141. Patricia Avatar

    I especially like your triangle papers for charm squares. Used them very effectively in a scrappy lap quilt requiring a lot of very small HST. Swapped with a friend for more variety by cutting the sewn paper square in half. Worked out so well! Great product!

    Yes, I have used them. They are a must have. All those triangle pieces for Block Heads and then a couple other quilts with little triangles need the triangle papers. I have tired them several times and they make you look good as a quilter when you use them. Not the distortion of the triangle as can occur when you use other methods. I highly recommend them.

  152. BONNI BROOKS Avatar

    I have used half square triangle papers and love them, but they are the older types and none finish less than 2″. I don’t like making HSTs one at a time…so easy for them to be distorted and too much time to do it! The tiny ones are intimidating, so I’ve stayed away from them. Maybe someday???

    I love miniature quilts and have used your triangle papers with great success. I think one important step that many quilters skip is to starch their fabrics. This step keeps the fabric stable once the papers are removed. Starch is truly a must in my opinion.

  173. KAREN BALDAUF Avatar

    I have used your triangle paper in sheets and for 5″ charms. They are essential, a game changer. My piecing is so much more accurate when the half-square triangles are made this way. I do starch fabric and I do trim HST to correct size. Love your videos as well, very helpful. Thanks!!

    I make tons of HST’s. Sometimes I use triangle papers and sometimes I don’t. If I’m making one of your patterns with lots of tiny ones, you can bet I’m using triangle papers. Not all triangle papers are created equal. I just purchased some of your smaller HST papers. Right now I’m sewing the 3” Sewcialites blocks, the papers are a must.

Thanks for offering the discount on these – now I just need to figure out which sizes I need!
