    No, I paperpiece mine. And I should have mentioned in my original post, that the idea for using the triangles came from someone here on QB, but can't remember who

    Very clever, I have many triangles. Many, many triangles. This just might work!

    Thanks for posting. I have lots of corner triangles to give it a try!

    I sewed matching ones together to make squares to use as borders for the scrappy quilts I had been making.
    Now I am throwing them away, not making those kinds of scrappies anymore.

    Anita Grossman Solomon is one of my favorite quilt instructors. She makes everything so simple. I ordered a set of her triangle rulers and they do make her technique of strip sewing them super fast.

    She shows you the strip piecing method on this video toward the end.
