I love my Geek!

Sometimes it is entirely too awesome being married to a math head.  I LOVE that man!  I wanted to make this pillow I'd been ogling on Crazy Mom Quilts.  I knew I needed some 80 paper equilateral triangles to do this project.  I wasn't too keen on her method of cutting them out individually.  SO, I asked my sweet Loverbrains if he could figure a faster method. 
I think he sort of thought it was a fun challenge.  He figured it up so that I can get 10 out of one sheet of printer paper.  Yeah!!!  Much faster!!!  For those interested, you cut the paper down to 10 1/2" by 6 1/16"....then measure 3.5" on the long side and connect the dots/corners diagonally...and then connect the bisecting lines down the center.
Ta-da....I'm a cutting queen!
I have a huge bag of bitty scraps...and love the whole "waste not, want not" concept! 
Here are the first 2...Just 78 more to go.  SEE?  I did MATH too!

Can't wait to see the finished product. I can't throw away my scraps, I have a huge tote full of them.

That kind of computation is beyond me. Looks like a cute idea!
