    Here's another web site that does all the math for you, all you have to do is plug in your numbers:

    Much easier than trying to do the math yourself!
    I made a royal mess the first time I tried this, thank fully it was on a scrap piece of fabric, but it's work out fine since then for me.

    Great quilt!! I use the diagonal seam for smaller quilts and don't seem to have any problems. I do starch before I cut the diagonal, however, and that seems to keep stretching to a minimum. For larger quilts, I like the wide fabric.

    Try fusing a strip of lightweight INTERFACING to the diagonal line before cutting.
