Along with learning the pattern for this block I also learned an excellent trick for making HST quickly.
This pattern required 4.5 inch HST. For this technique, you take two 7-inch squares and sew a 1/4 inch stitch around all four corners.
And after sewing a bunch of 7-inch squares together, you end up with a nice stack of sewed together squares.
Now you cut in half diagonally
then cut each half into half again
Which results with each 7-inch sewn together square as 4 4.5-inch HST!!!
Yes, my mind was blown after learning about this (after a soccer game of all things!)
My world of HST is now changed forever!
Thank you Quilting Bee! :)
