Using triangles sewn together
I've never made a quilt before, and am using triangles that were sewn together for a banner/ pennant/ bunting that was hung over a patio for a reception.
They were strung together with binding, but have since been taken off.
Because it was a rush job, the triangles were not perfectly made, and are more of an isosceles.
They are off in length and width, maybe about 1/2" or more.
The original size was about 9" on the legs, 8.5 on base.
The local quilt shop said stitch together first and leave 1/4", but because of being off in size this did not work.
I don't want to take all of these apart.
I'd prefer to stitch together and then cut off the excess, knowing it works before I lose any of the pieces.
My thought is to take an isosceles triangle ruler, mark it, then stitch.
Does anyone think this will work?
Thanks for you input.
