This is an easy triangle to make when doing foundation paper piecing in spite of the little tiny pieces in the pointy end.
I cut the following pieces:
- F: Three 1 in squares in blue, one 1 in square in white, one 2 1/2in x 1 1/2 in white and one 1 3/4 x 1 in in white.
- E: One 1 3/4 in white; three 1 3/4 in in blue; two 1 1/4 x 2 1/2 in in white.
- D: Two 2 1/2 in x 2 1/4in in white; one 2 in square in white; two 2 in square in blue (to cut into 3 triangles).
- C: Two 3 in square in white; one 4 in square in blue.
- B: One 3in square cut into 2 triangles in white (for B5 and A 5 pieces); one 2 1/2 in square cut into 2 triangles in blue; one 2 1/2 in square cut into 2 triangles in white.
- A: Two 2 1/2 in square cut into 3 triangles in blue; one 2 1/2 in square cut into 1 triangle in white.
When I saw the pieces in section F of the block I thought it was going to be most difficult part.
As it turned out it wasn’t.
Done with patience and cutting the pieces with ample margin I was quite successful in the end. And most importantly, pressing each piece after stitching it to the previous one is essential.
I can’t emphasise enough how important it is to press each piece. My blocks look a lot better since I started pressing between pieces.
After all pieces are completed it’s time to put them together.
And then it’s time to remove the paper.
You can see how tiny the triangles are on the photo.
Where to get the Jane A. Stickle Quilt patterns
Susan Gatewood’s paper foundation . All patterns are free though Susan says “I only ask that you consider making a donation to the Bennington Museum, in Bennington, Vermont. And if you do, it would make me tremendously happy if you would tell them that you have received help from me.” I totally recommend Susan’s patterns as they are very easy to use.
