Perfect Points with Equilateral Triangles


Perfect Points with Equilateral Triangles

Hello, quilters!

 

We have some big news for you to be shared soon, so keep an eye out for another newsletter later this week.

 

In the meantime, here are some tips on creating the perfect points on your equilateral triangles.

Pressing. Using a starch spray is a great way to stiffen up your fabric when you go to press it. It also helps the bias in the “EQ” triangles stay as firm as possible when sewing.

 

Cutting. If your pieces are cut just a little bit off, this can have a snowball effect and negatively impact the final result of the piece when sewing. Start off on the right track by making sure that your rulers and templates are accurate.

 

Be sure to check that the size scale is correct. Most patterns will have a one inch square to check with. 

 

Sewing. When lining your triangles up to sew, match the points at the seam intersection, not along the raw edge of the fabric. Pin it along the seams so that it doesn’t shift. All this will ensure that the seams line up and you have a nice point. 

 

We hope you found these points (pun intended) helpful. 

 
Happy sewing everyone,

Phyllis and the QA staff
