I bought the 60-degree strip ruler by Creative Grids to make the "Bejeweled" Table Runner by "The Quilt Company." I followed the instructions as they are written. I cut my triangles from my jelly roll. I sewed the triangle side-by-side, the grain edge (opposite to the clipped edge) always on the outer sides of the row of triangles.

Here's my problem...

When I'm ready to join the rows together, I end up NOT with a point on the triangles. I lose the points. Joining the triangles together is nothing like making flying geese (where you have 1/4" of fabric beyond the top point of the triangle). After joining these triangles, I have finished points without the 1/4" of additional fabric beyond the points.

What am I doing wrong? If you have this pattern and ruler, could you please enlighten me?

Thank you so much!
