size of setting and corner triangles
I am sort of new to quilting and I just learned one valuable lesson: don’t follow some cutting instructions! But my problem is the setting and corner triangles. I just finished piecing my blocks and they should have ended up 12.5″ square but because I cut the fabric like the instructions said to instead of cutting the way I was comfortable with, my pieced squares are about 12.25″. I guess I can live with that although I am mad at myself for using this pattern but, my question is now what side do I cut the setting and corner triangles to? The instructions for the 12.5″ block say to cut 18.25″ sqaure for the setting triangles and 9.75″ for the corners. Since my blocks are now smaller than they should be, what size do I cut these blocks to? I know there is some math involved here but I don’t know what it is. Sorry to run on, I hope this makes sense and someone can help me.
