You have to scroll down a little.

Here's another
Pinot,
Are you doing setting triangles, or half square triangles, or quarter square triangles?
The calculations so far are for setting triangles.
If you want to make quarter square triangles and/or half square triangles look at the following:

thank you sadiemae!!! my friend did not sent the panel yet, she's very busy and waiting for my Round Robbin to arrive...Originally Posted by Sadiemae
You're supposed to add 7/8ths of an inch to your finished size to make half square triangles. But they must be sewn very accurately or they'll be a little small. So add a full inch and then square them up. So if the finished size you need is 3 inches cut them 4 inches. You'll then square them up to 3.5 inches and when sewn into your block they'll be 3 inches.
Thanks everybody!!!for helping me with my triangles. You're sooooo kind!!!and funny and helpfull and you listen well and understanding and I could go on and on.....I love this board!
