While this author suggests you use your scraps to "Waste Not,"
I had difficulty with the small slender triangle.
Here's my method of construction that unfortunately does "waste a bit."
For 12 inch square
Cut 4 right triangles
Lucky me had a 6 in + 1/4 inch seams triangle ruler.
Place a mark 2 ¼" as shown.
Press along the line shown by the ruler.
Placing right sides together, stitch along the folded line.
Press and cut.
These corners will end up on the edge of the block, but when putting all the blocks together, it will be important these 1/4 inch corners be there.
Make 4 to complete the block.
(I like the black peaking through the pieces. Might look good with black strips?)
How about not wasting the white pieces, and use them in some strip quilting to waste not?
