I've decided that I'm going to try the Fast Finish Triangles for a gift wallhanging. I have not used the method (or any sleeve method, in fact) before. The measurements, however, seem out of scale for my quilt. The top is roughly 27" which would take a 9"x9" square. When I did a test run the triangle seems huge. There seems to be alot of wasted fabric there.
I plan to use only two at the top of the quilt.
Do the triangles really need to be that size. Isn't it the dowel that is running the length of the top giving it the support? Or do those triangles give support as well? It seems to me that they are just holding the dowel in place?
Does anyone have experience with different sizes of triangles?
