    Jenny Doan also has a tutorial at the Missouri Star Quilt website. Don't need any frogs just press on the diagonal then stitch 1/4" seam on both sides and cut down the fold. Sorry, I don't link well.

    Thanks so much for posting this. She mentions "frog tape" but I would imagine painter's tape would work just as well?

    I am a little embarrassed to ask this question: What is 'frog tape' ?

    Pardon, but if you have dark fabric, you can't see where you're going to stay on that tape edge...

    This is a good idea to use painter's tape, but since Frog Tape has something on the sticky side that turns paint into a gel form, I would worry about damage to the finish of the machine or table. Probably nothing. Now we just need a mathematician to tell us what size triangles to begin with to end up with a triangle that doesn't have to be trimmed.

    Thanks for sharing this tip. I'm certainly going to try it. If I can get it to work, it will be the fastest way and not have biased edges.
