Today it was Cotton Boll.
I did mine this way:
Cut four 4 1/2" squares from the striped fabric. I had to cut it on the bias to get my stripes the way I wanted them, so I starched it heavily first and was very careful handling it.
Then I dispensed with the 1/8" measurements and cut (8) 3" squares from background fabric. I sewed them on two corners of each big square as you would snowball corners. After pressing the resulting triangles, you can trim the fabric from behind, or leave it as you prefer. But be sure to check that you pieces match up correctly before doing that. If you are careful in marking a sewing line on the background squares and in positioning them on the bigger squares, you shouldn't have any problems.
Sorry I didn't take pictures but this is such a simple and frequently used method (sew and flip corners) that I hope everyone understands what I did.
Yesterday I made two of the Block 7 Sawtooth 16 Patch from ThreadHead
I really enjoy making these. I used this block for a wedding quilt for a granddaughter a few years ago.
In this case I set the blocks on point and added pieced sashing to create friendship stars between the bigger blocks. I need to make another of those!
