On-Point Triangles for 4.5 inch Squares make your life easier.
Setting square quilt blocks on point requires triangles to finish with a straight edge. Before Inklingo, the math was tricky. Now, just print, cut, and sew by hand or by machine.

On-Point Triangles for 4.5 inch Squares make it easy to sew squares into diagonal rows.
Some quilters avoid on-point settings because of the math and measurements but Inklingo names shapes with the finished size to make it easy. There is no more need to cut it big and trim. You can start—and finish—with shapes that are the right size.
On-point settings (squares turned 45°) are usually sewn in diagonal rows.
The goal is to have straight grain on the edges of the quilt, so the corners are Half Square Triangles (HST) with straight grain on the two short sides and the edges are Quarter Square Triangles (QST) with straight grain on the long side.
Half Square Triangles (HST) have straight grain on the two short sides. Quarter Square Triangles (QST) have straight grain on the long side.
