Laying out of your quilt

I want to do the quilt on point. Blocks are12.5 and sashing is 2.5. How do I know what size setting and corner blocks to cut.

If your blocks are 12 inches Finished, and your sashing is 2 inches finished, you need too cut a block 211/4 inches then cut it on both diagonals. This will give you four triangles per block. For the corners you will need two 11 inch square blocks cut on one diagonal only to get four. The triangles will be just a little bigger than you need so you can trim them up after you sew them in.
