I like the looks of quilts that are on point. Sometimes, I would like to make blocks on point and have done so when using a pattern. No big deal, just cut the size it tells me!
Does anyone know of a formula or method to calculate the sizes? The square that is cut into the triangles to set the blocks?
Thanks for the info. I shared this with some folks who are avid, longtime quilters and they hadn't heard of it. Will keep this info.
Wow Kris - you are just a wealth of information! This is really handy to know.
fons and porter came up with a large triangle ruler that has all this information on it for those who lose this information or can't remember where they wrote it down at...teehee
I resemble that remark :o)
Nifty Notions Rulers by Kay England also makes what they call a Side Set Ruler. I took a class and made a table runner with 10" squares on point. So easy to do...No Math....No cutting squares in half.. Just cut a strip the size recommended on the ruler and then cut the angle flip the ruler and cut again.
As my granddaughter would say "easy peasy"
