    triangles for on point setting

    I am attempting to put together a lattice quilt on point. I have 6 1/2 inch unfinished squares with 2 inch unfinished sashing. I have all the charts and the formula for figuring the corner and side setting triangles but still cannot get it right. So= dumb question, is my "block" I am using to figure the size 7 1/2 inches? I have cut triangles in 3 different sizes and none seem to work. It cannot be that complicated, but that "light bulb" moment just won't happen!Thanks in advance.

    I would think your setting triangles would be the same size as your block. Use the 6 1/2" unfinished size block to determine your corner and setting block - which is a 6" finished size.

    So.... that would mean you'd use a 5 1/8" square cut once on the diagonal for the corner triangles and 9 3/4" square cut twice on the diagonal for the side triangles.

        Quilter's Paradise has a calculator for set in triangles and corners. I use it all the time!

          Ummm...I'm not the person to ask. I have only done one quilt on point and it was an accident. I was trying to make regular blocks and somehow, I added triangles to the edges of the blocks instead of making hst blocks and voila, the whold darn thing was on point.

            I've done several on point quilts, but I have also had a pattern to tell me how to cut my setting triangles and corner triangles. I love doing on point quilts.

              This is the chart I used - as a starting point. Because I'm paranoid I checked by cutting the triangles in aluminum foil first (I didn't have pieces of paper big enough) and then I cut the fabric just a wee bit bigger because I figured it was easier to trim than to try to ease them in...
