After I posted a photo of my pillow talk swap pillow, a couple of people asked how I put all of those triangles together. So I thought I'd write a little how-to using some Brrr (I adore those polar bears!).
- Instead of "blocks" we are going to base this on triangles. I used 12" triangles, which is made IMMENSELY easier by this ruler. It is a little pricey, but if you plan on working with 60 degree triangles again in the future, it is well worth it. The ruler is amazing. To plan your triangles, you can make up a grid of triangles in Photoshop or you can print one here.
- Forgive my amateur Photoshop skills. I considered each small triangle as 2" and then drew in the larger triangles. But instead of placing them in an even grid like this:
If you want to do log cabins, it is really easy. Just add a strip, trim, add a strip, trim, etc. You can also add strips of different widths (like I did here) to make the triangle off center.
