    Oops - I need to make quarter square triangles the easy way

    I mis-spoke. I need to make quarter square triangles. How do you take two sets of triangle and make them into quarter square trianges the easy way? Please and thank you a bunch. Jeanne

    Jan, you should assemble all of your great drawings into a spiral bound handy reference book.

    Thank you, Lisa, for the encouragement. Actually was planning that for this summer, but an unexpected right total shoulder replacement surgery coming up in 10 days has made my plans run amok! Pushing to finish a commissioned quilt as it is.
    I *want* to do this soon though!

    Jan. hope your surgery will be a complete success and you are on the road to recovery quickly. And look forward to you doing the handy reference guide book. I think there will be a lot of us lining up for that

    I agree. Hope your shoulder heals soon so you can do this.
