Dance of the Tiger - Part III, Setting Triangles and Corners

All the setting triangles are pieced and the four pieced corners. The instructions for both are below. Later this month after I assemble all the blocks and come back for the borders -- of course, there is tiger fabric and a beautiful purple. For the other Parts and Progress, visit here.

For the 10 (ten) setting triangles and 4 (four) corners, you will need to cut 66 half square triangles -- I cut from 2 1/2" strips of the background fabric.

For the framing -- you will need 28 - half triangles cut from 1 1/2" strips of background (if using the easy angle).

Using the above diagram, make 10 sets of framing strips. The black strips are 1 1/2" x 10 1/2". The square is 1 1/2" (you will need 10).

The pieced triangles are made from 6 purple 2 1/2" squares, 4 background 2 1/2" squares and 5 half square triangles from the 2 1/2" strips (see above for cutting).

Frame each of the 10 triangles.

For the pieced corners, cut 4 (four) quarter triangles from 1 1/2" strips (I used the Companion ruler).

Above is a corner unit -- 3 purple squares (2 1/2"), 1 background (2 1/2"), 4 half square triangles, 1 quarter square triangle. The framing unit is only on one side, made from 1 - 1 1/2" x 10 1/2" black strip with 2 half square triangles cut from the 1 1/2" strips. Need four.

If you have not done so yet -- be sure to sign up for the Newsletter from Black Cat Creations!

And because it is Tuesday -- it is Quilt Story Time, where I am linking up for a visit.

Love your quilt in progress. I just popped in from being on computer vacation and what a lovely surprise. Maybe I'll start one too.
