Thanks to all your pointers on how to get straight sided triangles I have now completed a new suit of sails.
It has taken three attempts to achieve what you see.
I am pleased with the result and confident she will sail beautifully.
Not exactly a quilt or quality shirt but it is to do with sewing.
I knew the machine would come in useful.
Cheers.

I'm a bit late I see, but I would have suggested using wondertape along the edges before hemming.  It would stop them stretching out as you stitch, then washes away.

Now thats a wonderful suggestion!.
I will be making more sails for my next boat so will definately do just that.
Thank you for your help.

Lovely job @Sewot  :thumbsup:  And great to see how a sewing machine is useful for more than just quilting, dressmaking and soft furnishings!
Dogs are such a help when dressmaking!
