  1. You do such a great job with the videos. I love watching them and am amazed at all the different ways HST can be used! They are my favorite block. With this method, how do you determine the size of squares to start with when you are looking for a particular “finished size”? Is there some kind of chart I am missing? I realize this finished (after trimming) with 3″ HST, but what if you want larger or smaller?
