    Coincidentally, I was just looking for the Maths for this. Thanks for taking the time and the photos (most of us have to have pics too).

    Thank you Lucy. I'd never seen this method but I like it. So neat.

    Thank you, how timely! I was just going to make something that requires these. And I am also doing 4 inch square! Perfect. I will let you know if I run into problems. Thank you

    Hi LucyInTheSky, I got a different result by chance. I wasn't reading carefully, and accidentally cut them diagnolly (instead of cutting across like you did), I ended up with 8 "hour glass" blocks; using the same measurements you gave. For 4.5 inch squares (before piecing), I started with 10 1/4 inches, sewed diagnolly & then made 4 cuts, I think.
    So, I am happy for the simple method & the formula you gave.
    Thank you so much.
