I found it!............

Off and on last week I was looking for the box with the Kaffe triangles in it and yesterday I found it!  Back in 2010 before I had a die cutter I rotary cut 6.5" squares and cut them in half diagonally.  I made at least 3 quilt tops (2 of them were sold) and I knew there were some leftover triangles.
It is hard to cut the squares exactly on the diagonal so there was always a little variance in the size of the triangles.  I decided to take the leftovers to my Studio die cutter and cut a 5" finished triangle out of them, 10 layers deep.  You can see there was very little waste.

I love having the corners already nipped off for me.







In another box I have 5" finished squares which will work with the triangle squares.






I made 3 more 16 patch blocks for that quilt.  I have a total of 32 now.  They are 10" finished so they work with all of the above too.


 There are some bonus 4 patches too and they are also 5" finished.

That is great you found those triangles you had been looking for. I have been looking for a garage door opener, a stud finder, and a adjustable square (this is a measuring tool for wood working) and still have not found any of them. I must need to dig a bit deeper! LOL!!!

It's amazing to me how you keep track of all your bits and pieces from other projects, ready to go with what you're dreaming up next. You are super organized as well as super creative.

What a terrific find- and it fits the magic 5" you seem to be using. I will so enjoy seeing what you design and sew together.

The cutters have saved so much time and having the corners cut is a dream. Glad you found them and can now sleep at night! lol
