I am trying to do a block called Path To Pieces found in the book called Relax And Quilt by Patricia Wilens.
I could do it the shortcut way, but I want to be able to understand the concepts.
a 3-3/8" x 5" rectangle
a 2-7/8" square cut diagonally
a 4-1/8" square cut diagonally.
Now, the triangle cut of the the 2-7/8" goes on the 3-3/8" end and the triangle cut of the 4-1/8" goes on the 5" side.
When placing the triangles onto the rectangle, how do you know that the piece is exactly centered before sewing.
I pieced one together with pins and it all makes sense when it's done, but that was just because I guessed. And to me, guessing is NOT a wise idea when trying to piece something together.
Thanks, in advance.
