What is the best way to fill in the edges of blocks sewed on point? The finished block sizes are 8 1/2 inches. I don;t kinow if I should cut triangles and sew them in (bias edge) , or sew in sqares and cut them. How big should the triangle or square's be. Thank you for help in advance!!!
If you are trying to set an 81/2 inch finished block on point, you need to cut the setting triangles as follows:
Cut 6 5/8" squares
Cut the squares in half on the diaganal and sew the triangles to the blocks.
Thiswill make your finished block 12 inches
I would have to know how you are setting the quilt to fully understand what you are asking.
you cut triangles and sew the blocks together in diagonal strips, with a trangle at each end. your corner triangles will be smaller than the ones on the sides. i don't have time to do the math for you, but you can find the charts online. or maybe someone can help you out with the math. you cut the side triangles from a square cut once on the diagonal, and you cut a square twice on the diagonals for the corners. they are called setting triangles and are easy to do. gini
