The Basic Triangle Fold
This video will show you how I do my Basic Triangle Fold.
The traditional way of creating 'Quilted' Ornaments uses a square. I started using a rectangle instead, for a couple of reasons.
- I think it results in slightly less 'bulk' in the finished ornament.
- I wanted to be able to use smaller or more irregular pieces of fabric.
- And finally, I could show more or less of certain layers in my ornament, if I wanted to (because the pieces are longer than they are wide)..
Also, the technique I'll show you in this video uses one less pin per triangle than the traditional method used for these ornaments. In the Basic Star Pattern, that's 56 saved pins total (those pins add up!).
