Sewing triangles together...Help Please
I know, I know...you're thinking "What is she talking about, she's made lots of quilts using triangles". Well now that Christmas is over, I decide to expand my horizons and try something I had never tried and now I know why. I am trying to sew eight triangles into a circle( does that make sense). Yes, I know to sew four together and then the other four together and then join them...IT'S NOT HAPPENING. I would say 1 out of 5 looks right and the others either don't line up or don't lay flat. Is there a knack for this? I have the entire quilt cut out and would hate to back bench it, but, for the life of me, sewing those little triangles together has got the best of me.The pattern is from Judy Martins' book Stellar Stars and is called Koyoto Stars.
