Quarter Square Triangles


Quarter square triangles are so named because four right angled triangles are cut from a single square. Each triangle takes up a quarter of the square. The pieces are cut in this method so that the other edge of the triangle (the longest side) is cut on the straight of the grain. The individual pieces are then used in the various patches of the quilt block.
