I'm just now discovering this method for making this block.
Place fabric right sides together.
Cut two 8 inch squares.
Two inch wide sticky note sheets make a great 2 inch marker.
The sticky note idea came from Anita Solomon.
Please find her quilt block and quilting pattern idea
where she has a pdf you can download.
Do not stitch 2 inches on 2 opposite corners as shown above.
Cut through the stitched corners.
Keeping right sides up,
rotate 1 over the other
stacking the unstitched areas on top of each other. (as shown above.)
Cut 2 inch strips as shown above.
Press pieces and layout as shown above.
Edges WILL NOT meet.
Trim to 9 inches.
Note the seams will end at the corners.
