I'm making a table topper, and the pattern says to cut one 8" square and bisect it twice for setting corners. Also cut two 5 5/8 squares and bisect once for 4 triangles. I thought I cut everything right, but the triangles were the same size, so I re-cut the 8" block, and they were still the same size!!
After taking out my trusty calculator and figuring how big they should be, lo and behold THEY ARE THE SAME!!!
Could have knocked me over with a feather. Why didnt' they just tell me to cut two 8"blocks and bisect twice, and I would have have the 8 triangles I needed.
Okay, I'm finished, but thought you might like to know.
