Easy Half Square Triangles

I am working on a new quilt with a lot of half square triangle.  One of my favourite methods of making these blocks is to do four at once.  the following photos are self explanatory.  I started with two squares of 5 1/2" fabric, placed right sides together and sewn.

Sew 1/4" around perimeter

Cut diagonally

Cut diagonally in other direction

Open and press. 3 1/2" squares.

Hope you find this method helpful.  It is cool today.  My husband is working on the walls, I'm quilting, the wood stove is warming the house and adding cheer.  Our Heidi is laying on the hearth and the chickens are outside doing chicken things.  All is right with the world,
