    Fitting precut squares/triangles together?

    Ok - I have precut 5" squares and precut 6" triangles. I am measuring the 6" on the side. The triangles measure 8" along the bottom. I thought - oooh - both christmasy and they can go together. So I sew the triangles together to make a square. That square is about 1/2" larger all the way around than the 5" squares. So, do I cut those triangle squares down to fit the 5" squares? I saw where Jenny was using precut squares and triangles together in a quilt and they seemed to go perfectly together. Of course now I can't find the tutorial nor do I remember what the quilt was she was making. So I don't know what sizes she used. Why are my triangles so large?

    Hi Trish,
    Is this the tutorial you were thinking of? The Friendship Star

    It's Natalie doing it, and yes she does cut down the square she makes from the triangles to fit the charm squares. I love these blocks more and more every time I watch this video.

      Thanks Lola! That must be the video! And now I know how to cut the triangles down cause I don't think I would have done it like that. I love the friendship star and the only quilt I've made using those stars was one I gave away. Think I just might make that pattern from these fabrics.
