Take the remaining triangle, then cut away from the longer side to make the other 2 sides 7 inches each, and this will the piece B. Cut the sashing pieces into 42 pieces at 2½ inches wide each, then sew it between pieces A and B, and make sure that the triangle pieces are centered by matching their midpoints together as shown in the video.
