Block on point

I'm busy with my Staphorster Quilt, yesterday Dieuwke and I discussed during our two hour drive about the quilttop. Well this is the result, a small blue border, wich represents the dark blue skirts and jackets the Staphorster women wear.
The only thing is that my quilt will be bigger than I thought, so I need more "hour glasses", well there we go another 36. In the middle are 144 hourglasses, and 48 hourglasses for each side.

For the corner I want "block on point". I'm always having trouble with the size ..... but not anymore thanks to Billie Lauder (who is really good mathematic). This is how you do it:

Corner triangle: finished size of block / 1.414 + .875 = size of one square, one square is two corners.

Jij hebt de turbo weer aan (zei ik jaloers, ik heb een kleine quiltdip). Wat een prachtige quilt in wording is dit. Groetjes, Petra
