Howdy, campers! I can not believe how fast and fun this camp is flying by! This week we get the challenge of equilateral triangles.

In case you're like me and forgot 4th or 5th grade geometry an equilateral triangle is a triangle in which all three sides are the same length and the internal angles all measure 60 degrees. 

This block uses a template, so make sure the template measures correctly once you print it off. If it does not make sure the reduce or enlarge it on a copier or inside of your print settings on your computer. Another option is to use a 60 degree triangle ruler to cut the correct size triangles.

Thankfully these triangles were not a challenging as I feared because honestly I avoid triangles most of the time but this was super fun! 

Just focus on you seams starting at the blunt edge of the triangles template or making sure you have a 1/4" dog ear that will help with the sharp triangles points.

I have a full tutorial below because honestly I find it hard to actually type out descriptions for this block so I hope you find that helpful!
