    Having a senior moment

    Maybe because I rarely piece quilts the traditional ways, but I need help to figure out the size on the setting triangles on a table runner with the squares set on point. Can anyone recommend? My squares will be 12 inches squares. TIA

    Here's a link to Bonnie Hunter's site with that info. She provides all the calculations, but if you scroll down a bit, there's a handy dandy chart so you don't need to do the math.
