Cutting Setting Triangles

Follow along as the The Fons & Porter staff teach you how cutting setting triangles can be a piece of cake. Setting triangles are used in quilts that are set “on-point,” meaning that the quilt block is rotated 90 degrees. The setting triangles do what their name sounds like: they “set” the basis for the quilt blocks that are connected to them. Trying to cut setting triangles using the Fons & Porter Easy Diagonal Sets Ruler is a breeze and highly reccomend. Jean and Colleen suggest cutting a corner setting triangle first to make efficient cuts.
