Rather than cut tiny triangles, wouldn't it be easier to piece squares in a four patch and cut off the points? Of course then the edges are bias and need to be handled carefully. But so small I don't think stretching edges would be a problem?
Could you please post measurements for paper piecers and hand sewers? I cannot sit at a sewing machine because of back issues.
You might try these methods; they are slightly larger but then you can square down to perfect size. http://www.generations-quilt-patterns.com/hourglass-quilt-block.html
Can you not do a little quilters math or I just trace my 1/4" seam allowance, hand piece and trim it to size?
I am loving these! Thanks so much for this fun sew along.
Thanks. I'm on it!
You got me with the Hourglass units. I love making them. Playing catch-up with the 9-Patches and Pinwheels.
