By any chance, do you have a formula for calculating the width of a block on point? I'd like to try placing some blocks on point but don't know how to calculate how wide my quilt would be. I don't know how you figured out to multiply by 1.414!Pattihttps://www.blogger.com/profile/05524208974066132710noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-1041351291931932869.post-24916608766852069482019-02-05T15:30:30.259-08:002019-02-05T15:30:30.259-08:00In our beginner quilting class, we have the studen...In our beginner quilting class, we have the students measure the length of the outside edge where the setting triangle will go (along the black line that runs vertical, from top point to bottom point). Add an inch and that is the size they cut their square. The rest of the process is the same as yours so the bias edges are on the inside. It's easy for them, and they don't hate me for giving them another math formula. :) (Formula's for HSTs drive them nuts…) In our next class I'm going to give your formula a try. Thanks so much for sharing!Beth @ Cooking Up Quiltshttps://www.blogger.com/profile/08786023962755107152noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-1041351291931932869.post-61592570517018733752019-02-04T18:19:37.959-08:002019-02-04T18:19:37.959-08:00That is a stunning quilt.
