If you are making this quilt, please use these important 'straight-grain' instructions. The book instructions are not clear and should be corrected in the reprint - another instruction that was 'lost in translation!
|The pattern pieces in the book are correct - just add 1/4" seam allowance. It is important to make a template for the triangle including seam allowance, with the top of the triangle cut off and the straight grain marked.
|Cut your triangles from strips and stack them. You will then be able to quickly see that the straight grain is opposite the cut-off tip.
