Summertime Dresser Scarf (and a correction)

Today I’m back with a bonus project that goes along with the Summertime Sampler Block-of-the-Month quilts — an embroidered dresser scarf!

Half-Square Triangles

Let’s talk about Half-Square Triangles for a bit, shall we? (Then be sure and read to the bottom for a special announcement.) There are more methods for making them than you can shake a stick at!
