2/100 – playing with patterns

half-rectangle triangles? (2/100)

I’ve been meaning to play with half-rectangle (?) triangles for a while now and had been saving this bundle of solids for just this purpose. I was planning to put together a quilt & tutorial for a class, but now I’m not so sure about the tutorial & class since I had a bit of trouble with the math. After joining the pieces, I ended up with 1/2 inch allowances rather than 1/4 inch and have to trim down before joining again. Each duo of triangles came out to an irregular size – 6 1/2 x 3 3/4 inches. And when sewing the triangles together, I needed to jog them about 1/4 inch in order to get perfect rectangles. I *know* there a better, more efficient way to construct these pieces. Until I find find that way, I’m not fit to teach this for a class. 
I’ll finish this top before the end of thew week because I want to see it finished. It’s important to go with the momentum I’ve built up here and finish the project. Meanwhile, it’s back to the drawing board for a different design for class….
