What Block do these Templates Make?..Please Help..Thank you!

Post by larynx » Wed Apr 08, 2015 8:18 am

These were found by my DB and DSIL in a bag of fabric that was my Grandma's that was in the parent's house that they are cleaning to get it ready to sell..the fabric in the bag probably dates back to about the 1970's..early 80's ..maybe late 60's...anyway they are of paper and the mirror image pieces are marked "green", the large triangle is marked "white" and the small square is marked "white and any plain color"...it appears like the solid plain colors that were being used were red, white and blue..any help identifying the possible block these construct would be appreciated..:)..If my mind wasn't so jumbled now I probably would be able to figure it out...but I just can't right now...Thanks! Sonya.

They look similar to El's ruler that makes star points. The Triangle in a Square ruler. It shows all of your pieces on the one ruler. So my guess is that yours will make a star as well.

Look over in the shopping part of this site to see.

I agree--looks like Triangle in a Square. The little square may have been a setting stone to go with sashing???

Jana and Miriam...The 2 triangle templates are almost EXACTLY the same as the triangle in the square ruler..(my paper ones being a tad smaller)...I think, Miriam..from looking at the construction of the star on the instruction sheet that came with it..(Shining Stars)..that the square template actually makes a PERFECT 4 patch for the center of my star..:)..It's like they used Grandma's Templates for this ruler!..:)..Thank you SO MUCH, Jana...and Miriam..for responding and helping...sure is exciting to have my Triangle in a square ruler match to these...:).((((HUGS)))) Sonya. (I am making a star with these and will post it when I am done..Thanks again! :)

Love your puzzle question, I couldn't figure it out.. See one quilter is good at assembling.

This is one reason I love this forum, Leah..What I may not know someone friendly is always willing to help..:)..Here is the end result..I actually like it better on-point..Someday I may make a quilt from blocks made from these templates...right now I have too many projects to finish to start another...someday, though..:)..

Sonya, your star is beautiful! Now I want to make some, too! I can see it scrappy... maybe laid out in a rainbow effect... or lighter in the center and darker towards the outside... I have all these quilts in my head...

How do we find more time? I can see your quilt in my mind with the darker stars surrounding the lighter ones... a tribute to your gmama.grandma.
