I can't use my triangulations right now as no printer ink and no $$ to get any. Thank you for any help. Happy quilting.

    Go to Jeni Baker's blog "In Color Order". She has an HST block of the month and explains that method of making them. I'm not sure if she goes into sizing in the directions. If not, email her. She's great. I have a feeling she will help you out. N
    OMG! Do you have a golden?

    They say for a hst add 7/8 to the size of your block. For a qst add 1 1/4 extra to the size of your uncut block. I like to add just a touch more and then go back and trim to size.
