1.414: every quilter’s magic number

I received this most interesting and informative article from Martingale Publishing in my inbox today.  It answers questions on how to calculate 
  • the cutting measurements for corner- and side-setting  triangles when the blocks in a quilt have been placed on the diagonal or on point.
  • the width and length of the quilt center in which blocks have been placed on point or on the diagonal.    
It's written in such simple language and explained so well that even I can understand the concepts.  In fact, I found it to be interesting enough to want to share it with all the quilters out there for whom this geometric concept is a mystery.

Hope you find it as interesting a read as I did.
