Begin by cutting your fabric to the correct shapes. First you will cut two equilateral triangles, with 15″ sides. You will also cut a long rectangle that is 50×4.” Then pin the edge of the long rectangle to one side of one of the triangles, with right sides together. At the corner of the triangle, turn the rectangle and continue pinning along the second side of the triangle.
