LHQSQ - Adding "Square in a Square" to the Mix

More 6” sampler blocks -

That you can make using -

2-1/2” squares -

And anything else -

That finishes at 2” -

Three across and three down -

Variations of the basic NINE-PATCH -

The sewn block will MEASURE 6-1/2” -

And FINISH at 6” -

===

This next batch of sampler blocks -

Will add another element to the mix -

SQUARE IN A SQUARE units -

That FINISH at 2” -


According to EQ7 -

These units are made with the center square cut at 1-7/8” -

And two 1-7/8” squares cut once on the diagonal -

To yield four “corner” triangles -

With straight edges on the outside - ;))


Or you can use the Easy Angle ™ by Sharon Hultgren -


Or they can be Foundation Paper Pieced -


Using 2” squares for the center squares -

And 2-1/2” squares cut once on the diagonal - for the four “corners” -

Then trimming them all down to size -

To me - the fabric waste should be minimal -

And the accuracy should more than compensate for it anyway - ;))


Since there are a number of different ways to make this unit -

Just use your favorite - ;))



Talk to you later - gotta go - gotta sew -

  1. Ah, I wondered where your nine patch journey would lead next! Now I see what you might have planned.

I love reading your comments -
they let me know that I'm not just talking to myself - ;))

FYI - I have always restricted comments to “Registered User” - and I have always moderated my comments - and I will continue to do so. I like to read your comments before I publish them - and I DO publish ALL of them - whether you agree with me or not. The only ones that I DO NOT publish are the “buy-me” and "spam" crap.

So - if you want to leave a comment but don’t like your word verification choice - hit the little arrow thingy to the right of the box until you find one that you DO like. I can’t always read them either but word verification is there for a reason and I refuse to be bullied into taking it off - ;))
