Can you help me. I’m having some difficulty figuring out the cutting of this block. Specifically D.diagram I don’t get the 135 angle. I can cut the 45 angle but not 135 and the length seems too small for the piece. What is the finished size of the individual block?
I found it easy to use the foundation paper method.It came out great.
I don’t know Foundation methods.
It’s not that hard.Lyn did gove the foundation patterns to use.There are lot of UTube postings that will show you how to do it.See how you go.I did it that way because I could not work out to cut that angle as well.
Rosemarie, make sure you print the foundation piecing pattern “original size” on your printer, (not “fit to page” or “shrink to fit”, depending on your computer). You may need to look for it on your printer.
The other suggestion is: I went out a bought myself a basic geometry set – the sort the kids need for school. All those angle problems solved!
Teens keep asking “Why do I need to learn all this maths?” I tell them “so you can QUILT!”
Our Mystery Quilt contains 52 blocks, one for each week of 2020.
Each block is pieced and contains 4 colors – a dark color, a light color, a medium color and a bright color.
There is a sample block that you can download to try before the class begins.
We are also looking to offer some other courses, if there is enough interest
