Seasonal Sampler – The FRAME (Setting Triangles)

Learn how to cut and sew Setting Triangles when making this quilted “frame” that can be used to showcase smaller quilts. You’ll also find out how to use Strip Piecing to make the 9 Patch blocks set on point in the border.

Setting triangles are used to fill in the sides when blocks are set on point.  Corner Setting Triangles are like Half Square Triangles and Side Setting Triangles are similar to Quarter Square Triangles.  In this video, you will find out how to calculate the cutting sizes for both of these setting triangles.
