    Lately I've sent this tutorial to several people; it occurred to me I should post it for everybody: an easy tute for making and using triangles in blocks and borders in PDF format for downloading.

    This is NOT a pattern with a finished project, but is a "process" oriented instruction with blocks of unspecified sizes. Choose your own size.
    Enjoy!!

    Jan, that was a great tutorial. It was very nice of you to share it with us. I just finished my first quilt with triangles - square-in-square, setting triangles, and border with QST's. Wish I'd had your 'go-by'!

    What is the difference between a square-in-square and a snowball? Do you put the seamline inside the square in the snowball? How much?

    Thanks
    Sue

    Thank you, thank you, Jan for this wonderful tute and with diagrams and graphics that even I can clearly understand. Have saved it. I know that in the future, it will "save" me.
