I need to make some blocks that are the finished size of a rectangle that is 9" x 8 1/4", and their size before sewing them into the quilt top is 9 1/2" x 8 3/4". Make sense so far???
I would like these blocks to be like windmill blocks made out of 4 triangle-squares, or 8 half square triangles. So what size do I make the four units or the triangles? I realize that these are not squares...but it seems like you should be able to make them anyway from rectangular pieces. I am just a little stumped on the measuring part.
Is there a math wiz out there to help me? I hope this makes sense.
