Yet it can be a bit intimidating to do if you’re not familiar with how to deal with the necessary setting triangles. Since triangles are needed to create straight edges, it pays to learn more about them.
An excellent article by Sherri McConnell covers just what you need to know. One important point to remember is that bias edges on triangles tend to stretch. She recommends pinning to prevent that. Starch is also a big help.
The article provides the math for generating triangles when setting together blocks, whether with or without sashing. It also provides helpful tips for use with quilt patterns that provides full cutting instructions.
This is a nice overview for anyone interested in constructing a quilt with on-point blocks, whether building it from scratch or working from a pattern.
