Hello Quilters!

I'm attempting to make a Pinwheel Block for the corners of my quilt.  I' ve  sewen three 2 1/2" strips together for the borders.  I want the pinwheel blocks at each of my borders.   What size should I cut my half-square tri-angles to fit the ends of my borders which will be 6" after sewn to the quilt?

Thank you......... CONFUSED!

To make a 6 1/2 in unfinished block you will need to cut your squares at  3 7/8 in to make your triangles.  After you sew your 4 HST blocks together they will measure 6 1/2.
