Quilt Shot Block #46 ~ Square in a Square for Midnight Mystery Quilt

Midnight Mystery Quilt 


I don't like sewing on the bias, because the stretch can be tricky.
I used the walking foot.
Used blue tape to make markers to help me find the center of the square edges.

I have difficulty judging the center of an edge on a triangle.
After folding several triangles to find the center,
and marking with a pin each and every triangle,
I found using a template made from folding a triangle,
I could layer about 8 triangles and snip about 1/8 inch to mark the center.
Made for faster assembly.
 34 Square in a Square Units completed.

Wondering how they are going to be used with

  4. Now that's smart thinking using a template for finding the centre of your triangle. Triangles are hard work.
