Hi, I found a lovely quilt pattern, but it warned that it was just a 'suggestion' picture of the final image, and seam allowances were not taken into consideration.
Essentially, everything is made from a square cut into fourths, so you have 4 equal right triangles. When sewn together, the squares need to be 4" on each side.
I'm fairly new to quilting, and horrible at geometry. Can anybody tell me how big I need to cut my squares so that after I quarter them and then sew a 1/4" seam, the completed pieced squares will be 4"?
I hope this isn't that confusing, I don't have access to a scanner to get the picture on here, unfortunately. Your help is greatly appreciated!
