I saw a tutorial on Missouri Quilt company and of course I can't find it now. Jenny was so excited that a lady had come into the shop and shared how to make a block the easy way. She used 2 charm pack 5 inch blocks. One was laid on top of the other stitched around the edge 1/4 inch seam.Then ONLY the top piece of fabric was cut corner to corner both ways,after the side seams were sewn..
This is how it came out.This is 6- 4 p blocks I had left over from one of the other little quilts.That one still needs the binding.
I am probably reinventing the wheel and ever quilter out there knows to cut one of the fabrics bigger.
I did not know it but after thinking about it while trying to go to sleep it occurred to me to try it. I cut the border piece of fabric 1/2 inch bigger then cut it corner to corner. Sewed it to the sides of my blocks and like magic there were the corners.I made these 2 blocks.One from pieces I had cut off other blocks the other strips from my scraps I hate to throw them away.They are kind of wonky but I plan to make a couple of throw pillows so it really doesn't matter.
