I do the math and measuring. You sew!
QST = Quarter Square Triangle
Quarter Square Triangles (QST) have straight grain on the long side. Half Square Triangles (HST) have straight grain on the two short sides.

About the sizes
All Inklingo shapes are named with the finished size (minus the seam allowances).
Most patterns list the finished size of the shapes but you can usually tell the size by looking at adjoining squares and other shapes without doing the math.
This is the shape collection you need if a pattern requires you to cut 4 triangles from squares which are cut from strips which are 1.75 to 4.25 inches wide. With traditional methods, designers add 1.25 (which is only an approximation) to get the width of the strip/squares, so in some patterns:
- Cut 0.5 inch QST from 1.75 inch squares
- Cut 2 inch QST from 3.25 inch squares
- Cut 3 inch QST from 4.25 inch squares
