May "Zig-Zag" Guild Quilt-A-Long Block

 Hustle (clap)
Get to it (clap)
​Guild members (clap)
Lets' do it!

It's time for a Zig-Zag block!
Enjoy a different way to make multiple half square triangles using paper templates.  

To keep yourself organized, clearly mark on your instructions which fabrics will be colors 1,2, and 3.

After placing two fabrics with a paper template stitch on all dotted lines. Make sure to use a shorter stitch length than normal to keep the integrity of the piecing when you eventually remove the paper (slowly and carefully please).
Cut on solid lines and now you have perfect-sized half square triangles!
Lay out and sew together!
