Here is a quick lesson on how to sew tidy triangles without making yourself crazy. The sample shown here begins as a four-inch square, although you may use this technique for any size. The Robertson quilt is composed of triangles of different sizes, from two to six inches, in a vibrant pattern: one large triangle is surrounded by a grid of smaller triangles. These layers make the colorful triangles pop forward and the white triangles shimmer. Even after one hundred years this busy pattern excites our eyes!
