Have you ever gotten hung up on determining the size of triangles to cut in order to set a block on point? While setting a block on point is a great way to enlarge blocks (and to give a creative twist to a traditional design) it can be a challenge to determine how large to cut the corner triangles.
Fortunately, there’s a simple way that can be done without math. The trick is to use rulers and a little bit of measuring.
Laura from Sew Very Easy shows you how in the following video. Her method can be used with blocks of any size.
While there’s a bit of measuring involved, it’s a very easy process. Plus, there’s no waste.

PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest has featured many patterns from vendors participating in the Craftsy Marketplace, most of which have been deleted by Craftsy. It's going to take awhile for us to hunt down new sources for those patterns. In the meantime there are many links to patterns on our site that no longer work. We apologize if this article contains one or more of those links and appreciate your patience while we straighten things out. Thank you!
PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest does not sell or otherwise provide patterns directly. We showcase patterns and projects from various vendors, bloggers and other sources. Please make a note of where you access a pattern (the link in the yellow box toward the end of each Quilting Digest article). That way you can contact Support for that source if you have downloading problems or other issues. Thank you!
